Abstract

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are still one of the major issues of obstetrics. Few studies have been conducted on the troponin level of pregnant women and the results of these studies are not conclusive, therefore we aimed to investigate the difference between its level among patients with severe preeclampsia, mild preeclampsia and normotensive pregnant women. This was a case control study that was conducted on all pregnant women who attended Arash Hospital in 2011-12. In this study, 144 samples were allocated into three groups. For each patient, age, body mass index (BMI), gravidity, parity, liver enzymes and platelet counts were collected and the troponin I level was measured in Shahid Rajai laboratory. The level of troponin I was normal if it was below 0.01. The troponin I level of none of the participants of control group was abnormal. Among the patients with mild preeclampsia, only one patient (2.08) had high levels of troponin I and in the third group, 7 (14.58) had high levels of troponin I. The difference between the troponin I levels of the severe preeclampsia group and the control group was significant (P=0.01). On the other hand, no significant difference was observed between the other groups (P>0.05). According to the findings of this study and similar studies, troponin I levels increase more in patients with preeclampsia compared with normotensive pregnancies.
