What Are the Reasons for Saving an Umbilical Cord?
The umbilical cord is the connecting structure between the fetus and the placenta. Shaped like a rope, the surface is smooth and transparent, containing connective tissue and a umbilical vein, a pair of umbilical arteries. The umbilical vein is connected to the fetal aorta through the sinuses of the liver and the umbilical artery along the inner surface of the abdominal wall of the fetus. At the other end of these two blood vessels, many interconnected capillary networks are formed, which are distributed in the placental villi. Through the penetration of placental villous epithelium, material exchange occurs between the fetal disc fluid and maternal blood in the villous space.
