Abstract :

Present Study is aimed to find out correlation of preeclampsia with lateral placenta and uterine artery resistance index .In this study we included 200 non high risk primigravida, all underwent ultrasonography at 18 to 22 weeks of pregnancy and site of placenta determined whether central or lateral. All patients having lateral placenta underwent colour Doppler and changes in uterine artery resistance index were noted. All patients were followed till delivery and occurrence of preeclampsia noted. We found out that 14 out of 40 patient having lateral placenta developed preeclampsia (p<0.001). And out of all 40 patients having lateral placenta who underwent colour Doppler, 13 patients had raised uterine artery resistance index (p<0.001). We conclude that lateral placenta can be used as a predictor marker for preeclampsia and if all patients with lateral placenta undergo colour Doppler, we can predict preeclampsia more accurately
