Analysis of CRP, PCT, D - Dimer in Preeclampsia Patients

Dr. Sippy Agrawal | Dr. Supriya [17] | Dr. Rajni Gautam


Abstract: Background: Preeclampsia (PE) remains one of the most common medical complication of pregnancy, it is the leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. No single test can predict preeclampsia so there has been growing interest in the combination of markers for PE screening. Material and Methods: The study was carried out on 100 cases divided into two groups viz 50 cases of preeclamptic women served as study group while 50 normotensive healthy pregnant women were served as control group. Demographic and clinical risk factors were noted. Pearson's correlation test was used to analyze the inter - correlation between CRP, PCT and D - dimer. Results: 78.0% cases of preeclampsia was found to be in age group of 20 - 30 yrs with mean of 25.4?5.3 years. hsCRP level in study group >7mg/L was found in 86.0% cases while in control group only in 4 (8.0%) cases it was >7mg/L. Both severe pre - eclampsia and mild preeclampsia groups showed significantly higher PCT values and D - dimer values when compared with healthy control group (p<0.001). Conclusion: Procalcitonin level and D - dimer level are good predictors for preeclampsia among pregnant women. and could be used as screening tests for detection and severity of pre - eclampsia.
