Objective: In this study, we aimed to determine if there were any changes in serum troponin / and CK-MB levels between normotensive and preeclapmtic women during the third trimester.
Study Design: Thirty normotensive women with no cardiac or obstetric problem during the third trimester and 30 preeclamptic women who were not in active labor attending the antenatal outpatient clinic of Sisli Etfal Training and Research Hospital 2. Gynecology and Obstetric Clinic between 01.01.2005 and 31.12.2005 were recruited into study. Obstetric history, gestational age, drug usage, blood pressure levels. blood count, biochemical charts, any kind of diseases, CK-MB and troponin I levels along with urinary analysis of the patients were evaluated for this study.
Results: Among the two groups, no significant difference was found concerning CK-MB levels (p>0,05). In terms of troponin I levels, the preeclamptic group was found to be statistically higher than the other group (p<(),()()l).
Conclusion: Troponin I may he a good precursor to determine minor myocardial injury, but further clinical researches are needed to follow up preeclampsia prognosis.
