A Study of Platelet Indices in PIH

Dr Indira S Bangera


Abstract: Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (PIH) is defined as BP more than 140/100 that occurs in pregnancy for the first time after 20 weeks of gestation without any prior hypertension history and may or may not disappears following delivery. It is also known to recur in the following pregnancy. Pregnancy induced hypertension includes gestational hypertension, pre - eclampsia, and eclampsia. It occurs in approximately 10 to 30 % of pregnancies in Indian population. This study was conducted in Father Muller Medical College. This study was conducted from May 2011 to April 2014. Sixty PIH confirmed cases were taken up for this study and thirty normal patients were taken as control. In the sixty cases thirty patients belonged to Pre eclampsia and thirty were diagnosed to have eclampsia. In the present study the mean age of the population was 31.26 years in Group 1, 29.26 years in group 2 and 24.35 years in group 3. In the present study the mean platelet count of the population in group 1 was 1.36 Lakhs / mm3, in Group 2 it was found to be 1.12 Lakhs / mm3 and 2.62 Lakhs / mm3 in group 3. In the present study the mean platelet volume of the population in group 1 was 9.1, in Group 2 it was found to be 8.05 and 11.1 in group 3. In the present study the mean platelet volume of the population in group 1 was 14.7, in Group 2 it was found to be 16.2 and 11.06 in group 3. When compared with the normotensive pregnant females, in the eclapsia and pre eclampsia pregnant females there are definite variations in the Platelet values and indices.
