Abstract

Objective: The aim of our study is to examine the changes in uterine artery Doppler flow of pregnant women with pelvic girdle pain compared to pregnant women without pelvic girdle pain.

Material-method: 54 volunteer pregnant women, who were in the third trimester of their pregnancy and applied to the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics of Abant İzzet Baysal University Faculty of Medicine between April 2021 and August 2021, were included in the study. Two groups were defined as pregnant women with pelvic girdle pain (n=27) and pregnant women without pelvic girdle pain (n=27). Evaluation questionnaires and uterine artery Doppler ultrasonography were applied to both groups. Systole/diastole (S/D) and pulsatility index (PI) of the two groups that underwent uterine artery Doppler ultrasonography were measured and recorded.

Results: It is found that the pregnant women with and without pelvic girdle pain participating in the study were similar in terms of age, height, body weight, gestational week, CV, education level, obstetric history, smoking and occupation (p>0.05). Uterine artery S/D (p=0.006) was found to be significantly higher in the group with pelvic girdle pain than in pregnant women without pelvic girdle pain. There was no significant difference between the presence of bilateral notching (p = 0.096) and PI values ​​(p = 0.051) in the uterine artery Doppler flow of pregnant women in both groups.

Conclusion: It is found that uterine artery Doppler S/D measurement was higher in pregnant women with pelvic girdle pain in the third trimester than in pregnant women without pelvic girdle pain.
