Abstract

Uterine fundal and low segment arcuate artery velocimetry was studied in normal pregnant women and in severe preeclamptic patients. The waveform velocity of the preeclamptic group revealed large differences between systole and diastole, as well as an increased resistance index. Furthermore, the abnormality was more severe in the fundal than in the low segment arcuate measurement.
