Prevalence of Hypertensive Disorder of Pregnancy in North India
Aims and Objective: Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) are among the commonest medical disorders during pregnancy constituting one of the greatest causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality worldwide . This study aimed to analyze the prevalence of hypertensive disorder of pregnancy in North India
Material and Method: The study group consisted of a total of 150 pregnant women attending Maharaja Agrasen hospital OPD/IPD during their second trimester (14-20 weeks) of pregnancy from Dec 2016 to Nov 2017.
Results: Out of 146 cases studied , 129 cases remained normotensive and 17 cases developed HDP. Out of 17 cases ,8 cases had mild HDPs and 9 cases had severe HDPs. The prevalence of HDP was 11.7% in present study.
Conclusion: The study concluded that the incidence of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy was higher than worldwide average and hence early diagnosis and intervention through regular antenatal checkup is pivotal to prevent hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and its complications.
