Changes of cerebral hemodynamics in pregnant women with mild and moderate preeclampsia

The study involved 25 women with the physiological course of pregnancy, 35 pregnant women with mild preeclampsia and 10 pregnant women with moderate preeclampsia. Transcranial dopplerography with location of the medial, anterior, posterior cerebral,  basilar  and  vertebral  arteries  was  performed  simultaneously  with  recording  arterial  pressure.  It  was  established  that  an increasing severity of gestosis results in a breakdown of autoregulatory mechanisms and hyperperfusion of the cerebrum, and the posterior areas of the brain suffer predominantly.
