Perinatal autopsy

Videos demonstrating demonstrating perinatal autopsy have been generously donated by Dr Susan Arbuckle and Dr Amanda Charlton.

While dissection of post-mortem specimens has not been included in the cut-up manual protocols, these videos are a useful addition demonstrating fetal autopsy procedures.

These videos are available for RCPA members after login via these links to the Education section of the website:

Perinatal autopsy -incisions, brain removal and heart dissection videos

Fetal heart dissection -second and third trimester (as clinical cases)
