BACKGROUND To compare the ratio between the fetal middle cerebral artery and the umbilical artery using Doppler flow velocimetry indices (resistance index, pulsatility index and A/B relation) before and after administration of magnesium sulfate to pregnant women with severe preeclampsia (pure or superimposed). METHODS A prospective cohort study was conducted with each pregnant woman representing her own control. Forty severe preeclamptic women were included and underwent Doppler sonography… CONTINUE READING
