Abstract: Doppler study of maternal renal artery was conducted to evaluate maternal renal artery doppler changes in women with Hypertensive disorder of pregnancy and normotensive healthy pregnant women. This study was conducted on 140 pregnant women full-filing inclusion and exclusion criteria with informed consent. The study population divided into 2 groups: Group 1 (70 cases) - pregnant women with Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy, Group 2 (70 controls) - normotensive pregnant women underwent maternal right main renal artery sonography with doppler. Maternal renal artery Doppler indices calculated and values were compared in both groups. Results: Peak systolic velocity PSV, end-diastolic velocity EDV, systolic/diastolic ratio S/D ratio, pulsatility indices PI, resistivity indices RI of maternal right main renal artery were significantly higher in pregnant women with HDP compared to normotensive pregnant women (p<0.05). Conclusion: Maternal renal artery doppler ultrasound is clinically relevant in the diagnosis and follow-up of renal complications in women with hypertensive disorder of pregnancy.
