Abstract

Introduction: Pre-eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction are important causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Gestational age at the onset of pre-eclampsia will determine the degree of fetal compromise. Hence, early detection of preeclampsia is important to improve maternal and perinatal outcome. Utero placental circulation can be non-invasively assessed by Doppler analysis of uterine arteries.
Aims and Objectives: The aim of our study is early prediction of pre-eclampsia and Intra uterine growth restriction by Doppler assessment of uterine artery.
Materials and Methods: 100 antenatal women of singleton pregnancy at 16-24 weeks of gestation were selected for study in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at MNR Medical College, Sangareddy from May 2015 to April 2016. Doppler evaluation of uterine artery along with routine biometry was done.
Results: Out of 100 cases studied, 19 patients showed abnormal uterine artery Doppler results and among these 16(84.2%) developed preeclampsia, 8(42%) had intrauterine growth restriction, 6(31.5%) babies required NICU admission and 2(10.5%) intrauterine fetal deaths were noted. Sensitivity and specificity to detect pre-eclampsia was 84.2% and 83% respectively and that of intrauterine growth restriction was 42% and 96% respectively.
Conclusion: Uterine artery notching, high PI, RI in uterine artery Doppler analysis can be a good screening tool for early prediction of pre-eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction.

Keywords: Pre-eclampsia, Intrauterine growth restriction, Uterine artery Doppler.
