Preeclampsia and eclampsia in parturients from the in vitro fertilization program

Tabš Dunja, Vejnović Tihomir, Radunović Nebojša

Women from in vitro fertilization program are at higher risk for developing pregnancy induced hypertension, so we analyzed the incidence of preeclampsia and eclampsia in women who conceived in an in vitro fertilization program. A seven-year study included 144 parturients from in vitro fertilization program. The control group consisted of 39.112 parturients from general population. We analyzed only women with singleton pregnancies. There were 2.08% parturients from the in vitro fertilization program, and 0.40% from the control group, with diagnosis of preeclampsia, withc2=6,24; p0,10). Parturients from in vitro fertilization program are at statistically significantly higher risk for preeclampsia, but not for eclampsia, when compared with women from general population.
