Evaluation of Diagnostic Value of Amniotic Fluid Ferritin and Its Relation to the Pregnancy Complications


Introduction: The health of the child is in close relation with the health of the mother and his access to health care. Among these services, it is possible to perform prenatal care with the aim of identifying risk factors and predicting and preventing pregnancy complications.

Methodology: This descriptive-analytic study was performed on all pregnant women referring to the clinic of Amiral-Momenin Hospital in Zabol in 2017; pregnant mothers with gestational age more than 20 weeks.

Results: The present study was conducted on 100 pregnant women referring to the clinic of Amiral-Momenin Hospital in Zabol in 2017; the mean age of studied subjects turned out to be 29.86 ± 6.22 years.

Discussion and conclusion: The results of this study showed that the mean ferritin level in women with preeclampsia and premature rupture of membrane was significantly higher than healthy women without complications of pregnancy; however, ferritin in the other complications of pregnancy, including Gestational diabetes, fetal abnormalities, placental abruption, and oligohydramnios were not statistically different with healthy pregnant women.
