OBJECTIVE To estimate if women with preeclampsia had measurable differences in the brachial artery waveforms after blood flow occlusion. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, 14 preeclamptic and 28 matched normotensive women were assessed. Hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets syndrome patients were excluded. All patients had baseline brachial Doppler flow velocities while resting in the left lateral position and after a 60-second forearm occlusion. Doppler waveforms were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
