AIM: To evaluate the spatial distribution of electroneuro-pathological aspects of brain activity at pregnant women with hypertensive disease by BEAM (Brain Electrical Activity Mapping).
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty pregnant women (week 20 to 39) with hypertensive disease were recruited. Healthy pregnant women were also recruited control group. Maternal monitoring included spectral multichannel EEG analysis (brain mapping), repeated clinical examinations and laboratory investigations.
RESULTS: The major EEG changes observed were focal slowing of the background activity (14 patients)--occipital lobes especially, and intermittent spike and sharp wave transients (5 patients).
CONCLUSIONS: Our finding's indicate that EEG brain mapping are probably sensitive in detecting the extent of the pathology in the brain in women with in hypertensive disease associated with pregnancy.
