Serum LDH in preeclampsia versus normotensive pregnant women: A comparative study
Author(s): Dr. Syeda Sarah and Dr. Amrutha S Patil
Abstract: Background: This study was done to compare the serum levels of Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH), in preeclampsia versus normotensive pregnant woman and correlate their levels with the severity of the disease.
Materials and Methods: 50 antenatal patients having preeclampsia and equal no. of normotensive patients were chosen. About 3 mL of blood was drawn under aseptic precautions from selected subjects in a plain vial for serum. Serum was separated by centrifugation and used for estimation of serum levels of LDH.
Results: We have observed significant difference in serum LDH in hypertensive group patients in comparison with normotensive patients.
Conclusion: We concluded in this study that serum LDH is-reliable and inexpensive markers to predict severity and maternal and foetal outcome in preeclampsia.
