AbstractBackground& Objective: To study the maternal & perinatal outcome in women with preeclampsia remote from term i.e. early onset PE (between 20-34 weeks of gestation) and to compare the maternal and perinatal outcome in women with preeclampsia near term i.e. late onset PE (between 35-42 weeks of gestation) with reference to age, parity, severity of PE, mode of delivery and complications.
Materials and methods: The study was a prospective observational study conducted in the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in DMCH, Darbhanga. 100 antenatal women meeting the inclusion criterion were studied. They were further divided into two groups: Group 1- Preeclampsia remote from term (< 34 weeks of gestation) and Group 2 – Preeclampsia near term (> 34 weeks of gestation.
Conclusion: It was concluded that Preeclampsia remote from term i.e. early onset preeclampsia is associated with more maternal and perinatal complications, the relative risk of developing obstetrical complications in preeclampsia remote from term is 2 times more than in late onset preeclampsia.
