The Functional Morphology of the Human Endometrium and Decidua. Authors and implantation was very limited, so much so that Seiler (), in his book The Uterus and the Human Egg, wrote: " in the left ovary the first signs of fertilization, namely a Graaf vesicle could be seen. The Functional Morphology of the Human Endometrium and. The decidua is the modified mucosal lining of the uterus (that is, modified endometrium) that forms in preparation for is formed in a process called decidualization under the influence of trial cells become highly characteristic. The decidua forms the maternal part of the placenta and remains for the duration of the : D   1. Introduction. Human endometrium undergoes a dramatic morphological and functional changes during the menstrual cycle. During the secretory phase, endometrial stromal cells differentiate to form decidual cells and are able to produce a wide variety of growth factors, which are believed to promote decidualization, an essential preparative event for blastocyst Cited by:   Uterine NK cells are a major source of angiogenic growth factors in non-pregnant endometrium and early pregnancy decidua,.We have developed a model employing 5 mm transverse sections of chorionic plate arteries from term placenta that are cultured for 5 days with various treatments ().At the end of the culture period the tissue is formalin fixed and paraffin .

  Functional studies of human utero-placental tissues have been limited by poor characterisation of the morphology and antigenic phenotype of the cells under investigation. The present study documents the effect of dispersal methods on the viability and cellular composition of cell suspensions prepared from decidualised endometrium in early human. There is one report on lymphatics in the functional zone of the human endometrium in 62% of samples (Blackwell and Fraser, ), while another identified endometrial lymphatics in the basalis region only (Uchino et al., ). The endometrium lining the rest of the uterine cavity is called the decidua parietalis. Of the decidua, the decidua basalis is the most important, as the vessels in this part of the modified endometrium supply maternal arterial blood to the lacunae between the fetal chorionic villi and receive venous blood from the lacunae. Morphological changes in the endometrium may be associated with perturbation of mechanisms regulating normal endometrial function. This study describes endometrial stromal and glandular features prior to and up to 12 months following insertion of the LNG-IUS. Comparison is made with first trimester decidua.
