Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Pregnancies with early onset fetal growth restriction have poor perinatal outcome. Sildenafil citrate (PDE -5 inhibitor) as a vasodilator increases utero-placental blood flow and potentiates fetal growth.
CASE PRESENTATION: In this study, a case was examined and Sildenafil was administered for her. It was found that Sildenafil improved the uterine blood flow with a favorable fetal outcome at delivery.
CONCLUSION: Sildenafil, as a vasodilator has emerged as a potential management option in the treatment of Intra Uterine Growth Retardation (IUGR) and preeclampsia by later normalization in velocimetric profile.
