Introduction: The blood flow of the maternal uterine artery is an important factor that helps maintain the intrauterine environment and enables the normal placental function to support fetal growth and development. Preeclampsia is one of the leading causes of maternal and fetal mortality worldwide. The relationship between uterine artery blood flow and placental development is essential to understanding placental and its abnormalities in both preeclampsia and fetal growth restriction. This study aimed to report high uterine artery pressure as a case report.
Case report: In this case, a 27-year-old woman, G2P1A0 and 15 weeks referred to this center for pregnancy care. The patient had a history of normal and non-specific pregnancy in the first pregnancy. The second pregnancy was done normally and was not report any bleeding and or spotting. In first level screening, NT was increased and aspirin was administered due to resistance increasing in both uterine arteries. At 35 weeks and 4 days, the patient was hospitalized due to a severe increase in blood pressure, and the cesarean section was done with the final detection of preeclampsia. Finally, the patient was discharged with the good general condition and normal hypertension.
Conclusion: High blood pressure is always a threatening factor in pregnancy and the lack of danger signs is not defining reason for the absence of this complication. Early detection and proper administration of preeclampsia can improve maternal and neonatal outcomes.
