Dr. V. Bhavani Devi, Dr. S. Ramalakshmi

Abstract :

 Pregnancy related acute kidney injury(PRAKI) is common in developing countries like India. The aim of the study was to identify the etiology, prognosis, management and to have preventable measures, to improve the maternal and fetal outcome. The study was conducted in Tirunelveli Medical College Hospital – Obstetrics and Gynecology Department from July 2016 to December 2016.A total of 22 cases has been studied. The incidence of PRAKI was 1.3% in our hospital. Pregnancy induced hypertension, pre–eclampsia, eclampsia was found to be commonest cause. Incidence of PRAKI was high in third trimester. The outcome was favorable with complete recovery in 45.47% patients. The low incidence of PRAKI was probably due to improved obstetric practices. Future research is further needed, to decrease the incidence.
