The role of uterine artery Doppler in prediction of preeclampsia

Objective: Is to assess the sensitivity of uterine artery Doppler in prediction of PE in pregnant women with high risk for developing PE in first (11 to 14 weeks) and second (19 to 22 weeks) trimesters. Methods: A prospective study included 100 patients aged from 17 to 41 years for high risk in developing PE seeking antenatal care, divided into two groups, Group A(unaffected group) includes 82 patients, and Group B (affected group) includes 18 patients for developing or non-developing PE. Results: The result of this study revealed that 18 in number developing PE out of 100 patients, the sensitivity and specificity of PI in prediction of pre-eclampsia for first and second trimester were 27.78%, 92.68% and 66.67%, 86.58% respectively, while the sensitivity and specificity of bilateral notching in prediction of pre-eclampsia for first and second trimester were 83.33%, 60.98% and 72.22%, 85.37% respectively. Conclusion: In this study it was concluded that Doppler analysis helps not only earlier detection of utero-placental and feto-placental changes associated with the disease but also help to take decision for early intervention. Doppler technology has provided the best opportunity for repetitive non-invasive haemodynamic monitoring in pregnancy for fetal well-being evaluation and predicting perinatal outcome.
