A study on blood flow in uterine artery, umbilical artery and middle cerebral artery using Doppler ultrasound in a group of patients with pregnancy induced hypertension
Dr. Revanesh Navlaspur and Dr. Narendra GS
Doppler ultrasound evaluation of the mother and fetus with the study of blood flow indices provides non-invasive assessment to study uteroplacental circulation and fetoplacental circulation and hemodynamic changes and adaptation in the fetal organs in response to hypoxemia; with this, the degree of placental dysfunction can be studied to know the severity of the disease. The study was conducted on sixty patients with clinically diagnosed pregnancy induced hypertension, who were referred to the Department of Radiodiagnosis. In the present study out of sixty pregnancy induced hypertension cases 35 showed positive Doppler indices in any of the three vessels studied. The remaining 25 cases showed normal Doppler indices in all the three vessels studied.
