Preeclampsia is a syndrome with both maternal and fetal manifestations. Haematological abnormalities such as thrombocytopenia and decrease in some plasma clotting factors may develop in pre-eclamptic women. The platelet count has an association at prediction of increasing grade of pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH). There is an inverse relationship between the severity of PIH and platelet count. The platelet indices of Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW) too are… Expand
A COMPARISON OF PLATELET INDICES OF NORMOTENSIVE , HYPERTENSIVE , AND PREECLAMPTIC PREGNANT WOMEN IN PAKISTAN
This study aimed to assess and compare the platelet profiles of normotensive, hypertensive, and preeclamptic pregnant women. Further, to find out if mean platelet volume (MPV) and/or plateletExpand

Evaluation of platelet indices and platelet counts and their significance in pre-eclampsia and eclampsia
TLDR
The estimation of platelet indices can be considered as an early, simple and rapid procedure in the assessment of severity of pre-eclampsia. Expand
Predictive Value of Platelet Indices in Development of Preeclampsia
TLDR
Estimation of platelet indices can be considered as an early, simple and cost-effective procedure in the assessment of severity of preeclampsia and are directly proportional to progressive rise in hypertension. Expand
Platelet estimation: its prognostic value in pregnancy induced hypertension.
TLDR
The method of platelet estimation, not platelet count as an alternate procedure to estimate the degree of thrombocytopenia in patients with PIH cases indicated that there is an inverse relationship between the severity of PIH and platelet numbers. Expand
Laboratory findings in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
TLDR
A baseline complete blood cell count including platelet count is probably sufficient in patients with a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy and fibrinogen level and PT and PTT determinations are recommended in patients who have severe preeclampsia and for whom operative delivery or regional anesthesia is planned. Expand
Coagulation Profile in Severe Preeclampsia
TLDR
Whether a normal platelet count assures that no other clinically significant clotting abnormalities are present, and what level of thrombocytopenia predicts a risk of abnormalities in other coagulation indices are sought. Expand
Platelet Count In Preeclampsia
TLDR
The study revealed that low platelets count is associated with preeclampsias, and significant difference of mean platelet count between cases and controls was showed. Expand
Platelet count in 100 cases of pregnancy induced hypertension.
TLDR
Although there is chance of development of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and Liver Failure in patients with low platelet count, but in this study there is no such incidence. Expand
"Preeclamptic labs" for evaluating hypertension in pregnancy.
TLDR
Measurement of the partial thromboplastin time and prothrombin time in the evaluation of preeclampsia/eClampsia can be avoided if the platelet count and liver enzymes are normal and results in a decrease in hospital charges and no compromise in patient safety. Expand
Hemostatic Function in Healthy Pregnant and Preeclamptic Women: An Assessment Using the Platelet Function Analyzer (PFA-100®) and Thromboelastograph®
TLDR
Impaired primary hemostatic function with increasing severity of preeclampsia was recorded by the PFA-100 but not the Thromboelastograph, a point-of-care platelet function analyzer. Expand
Coagulation profile in newborns born to mothers with pregnancy induced hypertension
TLDR
Both term & preterm neonates of PIH mothers are at increased risk of developing thrombocytopenia & coagulation defects. Expand
