Introduction: Hypertensive disorders are common medical problems encountered during pregnancy with reported incidence between 5-10%. They form one of deadly triad along with haemorrhage and infection that contribute to maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality.
Aim of the study was to evaluate demographic factors in preeclamptic patients with and without transaminitis and their impact on fetomaternal outcome. The objective of the study was to evaluate demographic factors in pregnant women with preeclampsia in singleton pregnancies with gestational age >24 weeks with and without transaminitis and their impact on fetomaternal outcome.
Materials and Methods: Informed consent of patients was taken fulfilling the inclusion criteria. Demographic profile including age, socioeconomic status was noted. Detailed obstetric history was taken. Complete general, systemic and obstetric examination was done.
Statistical Analysis: Using a prevalence rate of transaminitis of 24% amongst preeclamptic mothers based
upon a previous study with an alpha error of 5% and a 5% margin of error the minimum required sample size was 281 patients.
Discussion: Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are one of the leading causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. In Indian context, not many studies have been done to evaluate demographic factors influencing maternal and neonatal outcome amongst pregnant women with preeclampsia with and without deranged liver enzymes.
