Preeclampsia, which affects 5–8% of pregnancies worldwide, is one of the leading causes of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality.
Aims: The aim of the study is to know the usefulness of Gestosis Score in the early prediction of Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy (HDP)
Materials and Methods: The present study was a Prospective comparative observational study. This Study was conducted from April 2021 to September 2022 at Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Chittaranjan Seva Sadan, College of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and child health.
Result: In our study, higher number of patients had LBW [19 (25.3%)] in group A compared to group B [13 (17.3%)] but it was not statistically significant (p=0.2317).
Conclusion: We found that, significant number of patients from the high-risk group developed thrombocytopenia, elevated transaminases, HELLP and severe hypertension. We also found that risk of IUGR and number of SNCU admission were much higher in group A
