Abstract

Background: The possibility to identify uteroplacental vascular alterations from the first trimester of pregnancy could provide a diagnostic tool for the clinical management of early pregnancies complicated by uterine bleeding. In patients with normal pregnancies, when embryo vitality is confirmed, the rate of pregnancy loss is low (3.2%). Objective: To assess the role of Doppler indices of uterine arteries to predict the fate of threatened miscarriage in 1st trimester. Conclusion: Uterine artery Doppler analysis has the potential to predict pregnancy complications associated with uteroplacental insufficiency before the onset of clinical features.
