gestation ( 26 ). Navaratnam and colleagues went a step further, and compared PlGF tests and the sFlt-1/PlGFratio with abnormal uterine artery Doppler ( 27 ). Results of their investigation showed significant association between PlGF or sFlt-1/PlGFratio with results of Doppler parameters. Taken all together, uterine artery Doppler can be used for prediction and monitoring of preeclampsia, but in order to increase sensitivity and specificity uterine artery Doppler should be combined with estimation of other markers.
