Abstract

Gated, pulsed, Doppler ultrasound was used to study blood flow velocity profiles in the arcuate arteries of the uterus during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. 40 healthy pregnant women were examined in a prospective longitudinal study, from 16-40 weeks of gestation, and a nomogram was constructed for normal gestation. The blood flow velocity profile of the arcuate artery demonstrated high diastolic velocity and low pulsatility. This noninvasive technique may give early warning of impaired uteroplacental perfusion and can be used to evaluate methods of improving uterine blood flow.
