um-BIL-ik-kel KORD A ropelike structure that contains one vein and two arteries that connects a pregnant female placental mammal to unborn offspring. 216
The structure that connects a fetus to the placenta inside a motherâ€™s uterus. It carries oxygen and nourishment and removes waste. The cord usually has 2 arteries and one vein.
The gelatinous cord-like structure joining the fetus to the placenta.
MS = The flexible structure, giving passage to the umbilical arteries and vein, which connects the embryo or fetus to the placenta. AN = cord blood = UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD see FETAL BLOOD UI = D014470
The cord that connects the developing embryo or fetus with the placenta and through which run the umbilical arteries and vein. The matrix (the substance) of the umbilical cord is known as Wharton's jelly and is a rich source of stem cells. At birth the umbilical cord measures about 20 inches (50 cm) in length. The cord is clamped and cut after birth and its residual tip forms the umbilicus (bellybutton).
Cordlike structure that connects the fetus to the placenta.
Attached to the placenta and baby, it contains arteries and veins that carry blood to and from the baby. It is covered with clear gleatinous material called wharton's jelly.
a rope-like cord connecting the fetus to the placenta. The umbilical cord contains two arteries and a vein, which carry oxygen and nutrients to the fetus and waste products away from the fetus.
The tubal structure (consisting of two arteries and one vein) that connects the fetus to the placenta, supplying the fetus with oxygen and nutrients and removing some waste products.
The structure that connects the placenta and the embryo; contains the umbilical arteries and the umbilical vein.
Lifeline between the fetus and the placenta. Waste and nourishment pass through the cord. It contains three vessels (2 arteries and 1 vein) and wharton's jelly to protect the vessels.
the cord that connects the fetus to the maternal placenta, providing nutrients and removing wastes. See also cord blood.
A flexible structure that connects the fetus to the placenta during pregnancy. It carries blood, oxygen, nourishment and waste to the placenta. It is first formed during the fifth week of pregnancy and contains the yolk sac and body stalk.
Two arteries and one vein encased in a gelatinoustube leading from the baby to the placenta. The umbilical cord is used toexchange nutrients and waste between the mother and the developing baby.
A tube-like structure connecting the mare's body with the growing fetus.
A structure for passing blood and nutrients between the mother and unborn baby. The umbilical cord is attached to the placenta, which is the organ that houses the unborn baby inside the motherâ€™s uterus.
Tissue made up of embryonic membranes and blood vessels that connects the embryo to the placenta in eutherian mammals.
Blood-vessel connection between the mare and the fetus.
The tube that connects the fetus to the placenta.
A thick cord of blood vessels that goes from the placenta to the baby, bringing oxygen and nourishment to the baby.
a flexible cord which connects the fetus to the placenta and carries blood and nutrients between the two
The wiring harness that connects the tow vehicle to the trailer, supplying electricity to the trailer's clearance and brake lights, electric brakes and a 12-volt DC power line (to charge the trailer's batteries).
the ropelike structure connecting the embryo or fetus to the placenta within the uterus
The structure that forms during the 5th week of pregnancy and connects the fetus and placenta.
The structure connecting the fetus with the placenta.
the cord like structure that connects the fetus to the placenta and through which the fetus receives nourishment during its development.
The flexible cord of tissue connecting the fetus to the placenta that brings oxygen and nutrients from the expectant mother to the fetus and removes waste products. The umbilical cord contains two arteries and one large vein.
The connecting stalk between the fetus and the placenta; contains the allantois, the umbilical arteries, and the umbilical vein.
a cord that connects the fetus with the placenta. The placenta provides oxygen and nutrition, and removes wastes. The cord comes out of the fetusâ€™ navel. After a baby is delivered, the cord is cut, but a small piece remains attached to the babyâ€™s navel until it dries up and falls off.
The cord that carries blood, oxygen and nutrients to the baby from the placenta during pregnancy.
Connects the placenta and the fetus. Consists of two arteries and one vein.
Conduit of blood vessels through which oxygen, nutrients, and waste products are transported between placenta and embryo.
The umbilical cord is tissue that connects the placenta to the developing baby. It removes waste products and carbon dioxide from the baby and carries oxygen and nutrients from the mother through the placenta to the baby.
The structure through which the fetus draws blood from the placenta.
A tough, cord-like structure connecting the foetus to the placenta for nourishment.
Two arteries and one vein encased in a gelatinous tube leading from the baby to the placenta. Used to exchange nutrients and oxygen from the mother for waste products from the baby.
A collection of blood vessels inside a fibrous sheath that connects the placenta to the fetus in the womb. When a baby is born the umbilical cord is cut or bitten off and the remainder then shrivels up. The navel or belly button is formed at the point where the umbilical cord used to enter the body.
In placental mammals, the umbilical cord is a tube that connects a developing embryo or fetus to its placenta. It normally contains three vessels, two arteries and one vein, buried within Wharton's jelly, for the exchange of nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood between the embryo and placenta. The presence of only two vessels in the cord is sometimes related to abnormalities in the fetus, but may occur without accompanying abnormalities.
