Hypertensive disorders are among the commonest medical disorders during pregnancy and continue to be a major cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. In this study, 30 women with no pregnancy complication, 30 with pre-eclampsia and 30 with intrauterine growth restriction were included. The present study included 90 cases over a period of one year. Doppler sonography of placental uterine, non – placental uterine and cubital artery was carried out. It was observed that, the mean pulsatality index at the placental uterine artery, non placental uterine artery and cubital artery is significantly higher in pre-eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction group.
