Dr Henry Knipe and Dr Matt A. Morgan et al.

The basal plate is a synonym for the maternal side of the placenta. The fetal side of the placenta is termed the chorionic plate.

Some pathologies and processes are localized to the basal plate, and evaluation of the basal plate is a part of placental grading.
