Trophoblastic vascularization study through angiopowerdoppler at week 9 of spontaneous pregnancies and after assisted reproduction techniques

  • 21-07-2014
Within ultrasound investigations Instituto Bernabeu who have been admitted to the international congress "24th World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology" that this September will take place in Barcelona, we present this study led by Dr Francisco Sellers, Director of our Pregnancy Unit.
The aim of this study was to determine whether there are differences in the volume and trophoblastic vascularization at early stages of pregnancy between spontaneous pregnancies and those pregnancies achieved after undergoing assisted reproduction techniques (ART).
It was performed at week 9, employing transvaginal sonographer and tridimensional Power Doppler, allowing to study on both groups the total placental volume and various vascularization parameters.
In a comparative analysis of all factors studied showed differences in the group being significantly lower TRA.
We conclude therefore that the study of trophoblastic volume and vascularity could be useful to understand and prevent the most common placental pathology in pregnancies achieved after TRA which explain some adverse perinatal outcomes in such pregnancies.
Instituto Bernabeu has a specific and multidisciplinary unit for monitoring pregnancy, especially useful for high-risk pregnancies or after assisted reproductive techniques.
