Uterine Doppler Pulsatility Index in Prediction of Pre-eclampsia

Dr. Ajoke Akinola [2] | Masuma Kazimi


Abstract: In 2017, 810 women died every day due to pregnancy complications which composite preeclampsia, postpartum bleeding, infection, unsafe abortion and other delivery complication, 90 percent of which occurred in developing country. Preeclampsia with a case Fatality Rate of 6.4 merit considerable measures for prior anticipation and early detection to decline the maternal mortality rate. Knowing the pathophysiology of the disease, many tests have been introduced with various sensitivity and specificity. With the ever growing imaging technology, Doppler ultrasound may become a milestone for prediction of preeclampsia in second trimester. Objective: This study aims to look for evidence on the sensitivity of uterine Doppler pulsatility index (Ut-PI) either individually or in composition with other parameters in anticipation of PE. Methodology: This study quested for literature entailing the sensitivity of Ut-PI in preeclampsia prediction with highest observations. Conclusion: It is strongly suggested that combination of Ut-PI significantly promote the accuracy of PE anticipation. Integration of Ut-PI with PAPP-A and PP13 foresee the preeclampsia with a sensitivity of 92.63
