Perinatal Outcome in Pre-Eclampsia : A Prospective Study

  title={Perinatal Outcome in Pre-Eclampsia : A Prospective Study},
  author={G. B. Doddamani and Usha Doddamani},
Preeclampsia is one of the common conditions of unknown etiology which increases the risk of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. The aim of the study was to determine the neonatal outcome in babies born to preeclamptic patients. A prospective study was carried out in the department of OBG, SNMC &HSK Hospital and Research centre from Jan 2012 to June 2012.The study included all patients of preeclampsia -BP≥140/90 mm Hg and proteinuria after 20 weeks of gestation.

Obstetric Outcome in Preeclampsia : One Year Experience at a Tertiary Care Hospital
The maternal, fetal and neonatal outcome can be improved with adequate antenatal care facilities to the pregnant mothers with severe preeclampsia, which depends upon the severity of preeClampsia.
Perinatal outcome in relation with laboratory findings in pregnancy induced hypertension(PIH)
A positive correlation has been made out between serum AST, ALT, uric acid, LDH, calcium and perinatal deaths in relation to the severity of PIH and these may be useful markers and diagnostic tools for predicting the progression ofPIH.
Study of sociodemographic profile, maternal, fetal outcome in preeclamptic and eclamptic women: a prospective study
Preeclampsia is pregnancy specific disease, characterized by new onset of hypertension (blood pressure ≥ 140/90 mmHg) and proteinuria (0.3g/24 hours) after 20 weeks of gestation in a previously
Neonatal Outcome in High Risk Pregnancies
Gestational age and neonatal birth weight were the most significant factors influencing the neonatal outcome with a very high morbidity and mortality observed in extremely preterm and VLBW babies.
Neonatal Outcomes from Mothers with Hypertension Disorders of Pregnancy: A Retrospective Study at a Referral Hospital in Rwanda
Maternal hypertensive disorders were significantly associated with adverse neonatal outcomes in the study population in Rwanda, and improving early detection, health education, and management of hypertensive Disorders in pregnancy is critical to reduce maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality.
Neonatal Outcomes in High Risk Pregnancies in an Egyptian Tertiary Health Care Center
The main determinants of poor neonatal outcomes were preterm delivery, previous section and hypertensive disorders, and neonatal morbidity was higher in high risk group.
The effect of walking on maternal and neonatal outcomes of pregnant women prone to hypertension in pregnancy
Investigation in Rafsanjan, Iran in 2018 found that moderate-intensity walking improved some maternal and neonatal outcomes in the high-risk pregnant women for PIH.


Neonatal outcome in pre-eclamptic patients.
Pre-eclampsia has great implication on adverse neonatal outcome and the various complications seen are low APGAR score, IUD, low birth weight, intrauterine growth restriction and increased need for admission to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Pregnancy induced hypertension is a common medical disorder seen associated with pregnancy in the rural population, especially among young primigravidas, who remain unregistered during pregnancy, which can be reduced by early recognition and institutional management.
Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy at Umtata General Hospital: perinatal and maternal outcomes.
Eclamptic patients with hypertension who delivered at Umtata General Hospital from January 1993 to December 1994 had significantly more maternal and foetal complications than non-eclAMptic hypertensive women, and eclampsia in the general obstetric population at UGH was high at 7 per 1000 deliveries.
Maternal and perinatal outcome in nulliparious women complicated with pregnancy hypertension.
The results of this study revealed that maternal and foetal-neonatal complications mostly appear in pregnancy complicated with induced hypertension especially in severe preeclampsia.
Pregnancy-induced hypertension and the neonatal outcome
The DBP e" 110 mmHg was associated with low birth weight (p=0.002) and prematurity (p =0.013) and the prevalence of pregnancy-induced hypertension and diastolic blood pressure association with type of birth and perinatal outcome was verified.
Risk factors for pre-eclampsia at antenatal booking: systematic review of controlled studies
Factors that may be present at antenatal booking and the underlying evidence base can be used to assess risk at booking so that a suitable surveillance routine to detect pre-eclampsia can be planned for the rest of the pregnancy.
Perinatal outcome in women with recurrent preeclampsia compared with women who develop preeclampsia as nulliparas.
Compared to nulliparous women, women with preeclampsia in a previous pregnancy had significantly higher rates of preeclampedia and adverse perinatal outcomes associated with preterm delivery as a result of preeClampsia.
Expectant management of severe preeclampsia remote from term: patient selection, treatment, and delivery indications.
Perinatal outcome in pregnancy induced hypertension.
Perinatal outcome and the factors affecting it were studied in 140 pregnant women with hypertension and the stillbirth rate was 8.7% in severe hypertension.
The effects of smoking and hypertensive disorders on fetal growth
The effects of hypertensive disorder and smoking were generally not synergistic, which suggest that they may exert their main actions on separate sites or work through separate mechanisms within or outside the placenta.
