Tri Nguyen Van, Bao Hoang Bui, Minh Huynh Van

Abstract: Survey serum levels of NT-proBNP and cardiovascular risks in patients with preeclampsia. Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study. A survey of 52 women with preeclampsia in the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics - Hue Central Hospital, from August 2019 to September 2020. Results: In preeclampsia patients, the rate of grade 3 hypertension was 46.1%, of grade 2 hypertension was 32.7%, of grade 1 hypertension was 21.2%. The average Sokolow-Lyon index in preeclampsia group with and without severe features was respectively 22.25 ± 7.38mm; 20.16 ± 5.54mm, the average Sokolow-Lyon index were not significantly higher in severe features preeclampsia group compared with without severe features preeclampsia group. The average LVMI in patients with and without severe features preeclampsia was respectively 120.68 ± 16.47g/m2; 92.27 ± 14.56g/m2 and the average EF in patients with and without severe features preeclampsia was respectively 56.21 ± 7.12%; 65.11 ± 3.45%. The average LVMI and the average EF were significantly higher in severe features preclampsia group compared with without severe features preclampsia group (p < 0.05). In additon, the average serum levels of NT-proBNP in patients with preeclampsia were 598.22 ± 234.35pg/ml. Serum NT-proBNP levels were significantly higher in the severe features preeclampsia groups than in the without severe features group (p < 0.05). Conclusion: The NT-proBNP level were statiscally significantly increased in the patients with preeclampsia. Preeclampsia patients are at increased risks of cardivacular diseases later in life. The serum NT-proBNP level appears to be useful marker to evaluate long-term cardivascular risks.
