Hi, split placenta may be placenta succenturiata (placenta with an additional lobe or lobes of placental tissue located a few centimeters away). It can be associated with complications such as placenta previa or vasa previa and the succenturiate lobe may be retained after the main placental disk has been delivered. This can result in postpartum hemorrhage or infection days or weeks after delivery. Duplex placenta (ie, bilobed placenta), two lobes with separate umbilical arteries and veins that unite in a single umbilical cord. In this vasa previa, compression, and thrombosis are major concerns. Hence, ensure complete removal after child birth. Take care and regards.
