ABSTRACT: Hypertensive disease occurs in 5-15% of all pregnancies and continues to cause significant maternal morbidity and mortality associated with neonatal morbidity and mortality. Hypertension is a sign of underlying pathology which may be pre-existing or appears for the first time during pregnancy. Here we report a series of 100 pregnant females (normotensive as well as hypertensive) from gestational age 20 weeks to 40 weeks. Aim of our study was to compare doppler velocimetric value of maternal ophthalmic artery in normotensive pregnancy and pregnancies complicated by hypertension.

KEYWORDS: Ophthalmic artery, pre eclampsia, RI (Resistivity index), PI (Pulsatility index)
