In addition, a combination of measurements of angiogenic factors like PLGF and abnormal uterine artery Doppler velocimetry in the middle of the second trimester may be useful in future screening for early prediction of pregnancy complications.
The uterine artery Doppler pulsatility index (PI) was studied in 20 studies (in 14 as the sole ultrasonographic marker and in 6 as a component of a suite of ultrasonographic markers).
If we take 10,000 women, and we do this five-step assessment--history, placental growth factor, PAPP-A, uterine artery Doppler, and mean arterial pressure--we will identify the top 6% of the population, and in this group of 600, 69%--two-thirds--will develop early or late preeclampsia or gestational hypertension.
