Abstract

Twenty-five healthy and thirty-one preeclamptic pregnant women were assessed by means of transcranial Doppler sonography. Resting cerebral blood flow velocities in the middle cerebral arteries were measured followed by a repeat measurement 30 s after breath holding. Absolute blood flow velocities and per cent changes after breath holding procedure were compared between the groups. Absolute blood flow velocities were higher in preeclamptic pregnant women both at rest and after breath holding. The per cent increase in cerebral blood flow velocity after breath holding (cerebral vascular reactivity) was similar in the two groups. Our data suggest that cerebral vascular reactivity is preserved in pregnant women with preeclampsia.
