Role of uterine and umbilical artery doppler in prediction of developing pre- eclampsia in pregnancy
Dr. Nabnita Patnaik
Results: The pregnant women were grouped into two groups: 65 women who developed PE with or without other pregnancy complications and 30 pregnant women who did not develop PE. Among the pregnant women that developed PE, 20 had mild PE and 45 had severe PE. The mean age of pregnant women who developed PE was 31.03 ± 3.11 years with a range of 22–39 years, while the mean age of pregnant women who did not develop PE was 30.65 ± 5.20 years with a range of 15–48. Conclusion: The findings of our study show that the PSV and EDV were significantly lower, whereas the RI, PI and S/D were significantly higher in cases that developed PE. The uterine artery PI is the best predictor of PE. A combination of the uterine artery PSV and the umbilical artery PSV best predict severity of PE among pregnant women.
