Background and purpose: Pre-eclampsia is one of the most common syndromes associated with pregnancy. Severe hypertension, eclampsia and other pathological disorders are the predictable outcomes of this syndrome among high risk pregnant women. Pre-eclampsia accompanied by bleeding and infection is considered as a leading cause of death in pregnant women worldwide. Early diagnosis of this syndrome can help physicians in choosing more effective treatment options. Materials and methods: In a prospective research we aimed to determine the sensitivity, specificity and the relationship between different factors in utrine artries among high risk pregnant women. G50 Ultrasound was used on 100 pregnant women fitting our inclusion criteria. Data was analyzed in SPSS V….. . Results: The mean age of patients was 23.2±4.1 years old and their mean BMI was 23.2±5.4. There were four patients (4.7%) with history of pre-eclampsia and one (1.1%) with diabetes. Pre-eclampsia occurred in 10 patients which was severe in two and mild in eight cases. The sensitivity and specificity of PI and RI values were found to be higher in first trimester and second trimester, respectively. Conclusion: This study found Doppler Ultrasound as an effective standard diagnostic method in diagnosis of pre-eclampsia in high risk pregnancies. These findings need to be assessed in different samples before we can generalize it to other population.
