Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the uterine blood flow characteristics in pre-eclampsia. Uterine arteries in 105 patients with severe pre-eclampsia were examined by color and pulsed Doppler ultrasonography prior to delivery by prophylactic caesarean section. Marked changes were identified in the uterine arterial blood flow in pregnancies complicated with severe pre-eclampsia as compared to normal pregnancies. Qualitative and quantitative characteristics of pulse Doppler waves can be different in the main uterine branches. The presence of early diastolic "notch", especially if bilateral, is a better independent indicator of pre-eclampsia than any other Doppler parameter. Significantly increased resistance and decreased mean velocity in pre-eclampsia and accompanying intrauterine growth retardation indicate decreased perfusion of the placental bed and the entire uterine vasculature. In pre-eclampsia, a strong negative correlation was found between birth weight and uterine artery resistance indices. Due to the correlation between intrauterine growth retardation and resistance values (RI and PI) out of the normal range, the measurement of these indices gives a possibility for prediction of the intrauterine growth retardation.
