The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of screening for pregnancy hypertension disorders using maternal serum biomarkers and uterine artery Doppler during the first trimester. At 11-13 weeks, uterine artery Doppler and serum measurements were taken from prospectively enrolled nulliparous women. In this study, maternal features, uterine artery Doppler imaging, and serum placental biomarkers (pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A, Inhibin-A, placental protein, A disintegrin and metalloprotease, free B-hCG, placental growth factor) were all collected and evaluated. Twenty women (2.2 percent) experienced prenatal hypertension, and forty women (4.5 percent) developed preeclampsia, with nine (1.0 percent) developing early-onset preeclampsia and sixteen (1.8 percent) developing severe preeclampsia, according to the findings. A combination screening model that included clinical features, pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A, Inhibin-A, and placental growth factor was found to be effective in detecting 75 percent of early-onset preeclampsia with a false-positive rate of 10 percent. Uterine artery Doppler, placental protein, A disintegrin and metalloprotease were all found to have no effect on diagnosis accuracy after adjusting for clinical factors. When combined with first-trimester maternal serum biomarkers (pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A, Inhibin-A, and placental growth factor), a combination of clinical features and placental growth factor can give an accurate screening for early-onset preeclampsia in nulliparous women.
