Basal plate

Last revised by Dr Henry Knipe on 23 May 2017

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.
