Abstract

Since the last edition of this volume, interest has continued in uterine artery Doppler velocimetry (UADV) as a screening technique to predict adverse pregnancy outcomes such as preeclampsia, for pregnancy risk scoring, and as an entry criterion for randomized trials on medical therapies for the prevention of preeclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction. These areas have been updated and UADV for predicting pregnancy outcome in medical conditions other than preeclampsia has been added. The areas regarding non-Doppler assessment of uterine artery flow, physiology and development of uterine artery flow, and the development of uterine artery Doppler waveform remain essential and have been retained for historical purposes.
