BACKGROUND: Eclampsia is a very serious complication of pregnancy which is responsible for high maternal and perinatal mortality. Worldwide, it accounts for 50,000 maternal deaths annually. In spite of several global and regional interventions and initiatives from governments and other concerned agencies, maternal mortality is still very high in India, with eclampsia as a major cause. This study was conducted to determine the mode of deaths and incidence of maternal mortality associated with eclampsia and to assess how socio-demographic and clinical characteristics of the women influence the deaths...

Human leukocyte antigen G (HLA-G) is a non-classical major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecule that, through interaction with its receptors, exerts important tolerogenic functions. Its main physiological expression occurs in placenta where it seems to participate in the maternal tolerance toward the fetus. HLA-G has been studied as a marker of pregnancy complications such as abortion or pre-eclapmsia. Although HLA-G is not expressed in most adult tissues, its ectopic expression has been observed in some diseases such as viral infections, autoimmune disorders, and especially cancer...

The study was done to see the changes of placental diameter, thickness and number of cotyledons in eclapmsia. A total 45 placenta, 25 from eclamptic mother and 20 from normal pregnant mother were collected from Gynaecology and Obstetric department of Mymensingh Medical College and Hospital (MMCH). Study was done in Anatomy department of Mymensingh Medical College (MMC). Macroscopic study of the formol saline fixed placentas revealed that, compared to the controls there was trend of less placental diameter in eclamptic group(p=0...

The study was done to see the gross morphologic changes of placenta in human normal pregnancy and eclapmsia, with the aim that it would be able to increase the general body of knowledge regarding the gross morphology of normal placenta and the changes that occur in eclampsia in our population. Total of 45 (n=45) placenta, 25 (n=25) from eclampsia and 20 (n=20) from normal pregnant cases were collected from Gynaecology and Obstetric Department of Mymensingh Medical College & Hospital (MMCH). Study was done in Anatomy Department of Mymensingh Medical College (MMC)...

PROBLEM: Impaired trophoblast invasion during the first trimester of pregnancy is linked to spontaneous abortion, and defective invasion in the second trimester to hypertension + proteinuria (pre-eclampsia). Hypertension developing during the third trimester of human pregnancy represents, in part, a corrective response in the mother to provide adequate placental perfusion for fetal growth when trophoblast has not to invaded and converted the myometrial porprtion of maternal spiral arteries into to low resistance-high capacitance conduits...
