BACKGROUND Defective trophoblastic invasion in early pregnancy is involved in the pathogenesis of pre- eclampsia. This study investigates the relationship between Doppler assessment of uterine artery resistance and endovascular trophoblastic invasion in the first trimester of pregnancy. METHODS Patients undergoing termination of pregnancy for non-medical reasons were categorized as having a low- or high-resistance uterine artery blood flow pattern by transabdominal Doppler ultrasound… CONTINUE READING
