Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To investigate troponin I and homocysteine in pregnant women with severe and mild preeclampsia. METHODS: 43 women with mild and 22 women with severe preeclampsia, and 34 healthy pregnant women were included in the study. Homocysteine and troponin levels of the three groups were measured at admission and compared. RESULTS: Mean troponin I levels were 0.005 ng/ml, 0.0116 ng/ml and 0.007 ng/ml in healthy pregnant women and mild and severe preeclampsia, respectively. These results were similar among the three groups. Homocysteine levels were similar in the mild and severe preeclampsia groups and significantly higher than in healthy pregnant women. CONCLUSIONS: Troponin I levels are not significantly increased in either mild and severe preeclampsia. Homocysteine increases in preeclampsia, but the severity of preeclampsia is not correlated with homocysteine levels.
