Abstract :

Objective: Our purpose was to determine whether by ultrasonography of placental location at 18-24 weeks of gestation can predict maternal pregnancy outcomes. Material and Methods: Total of 250 antenatal cases between 18-24 weeks of gestational age were selected, 50 cases had fundal placentation (25 central and 25 lateral), 100 cases had anterior placentation (25 low central, 25 low lateral 25 normal central and 25 normal lateral) and 100 cases had posterior placentation (25 low central, 25 low lateral 25 normal central and 25 normal lateral). Results: It has been concluded that about 60% of cases with lateral placentation developed pre-eclampsia (p-value - 0.00002), while cases with low lying placenta developed postpartum haemorrhage (p<0.001).Conclusion: Lateral placentation was associated with an increased risk of pre-eclampsia. Low-lying placenta was associated with high risk of postpartum haemorrhage. Key words: Placental location, pregnancy outcome.
