Huma Tasleem, Samina Tasleem, Malik Muhammad Adil, Mahfooz siddique, Khalida Waheed.


Objective: To co-rrelate clinically Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (PIH) with abruption and to see the effect of antihypertensive therapy.
Methods: Fifty pregnant women with PIH and 50 normotensive pregnant women with singleton pregnancy at gestational age more than 20 weeks were studied. Clinical evaluation consisted of a comprehensive history and antenatal record. All deliveries were planned in Holy Family Hospital (HFH).
Results: Out of 50 cases, abruption was seen in 4(8%) patients who did not receive treatment while no abruption was seen in treated group.
Conclusions: There is a significant clinical correlation between PIH and abruptio placentae. By controlling BP one can overcome the abruption and its consequences to some extent. (Rawal Med J 2005;30:59-61).

Key words: Placenta abruptio, pregnancy induced hypertension, antepartum hemorrhage.
