SANABRIA VILLEGAS, Luz del Carmen et al. Ophthalmic artery Doppler: a model for the prediction of preeclampsia. Ginecol. obstet. Méx. [online]. 2023, vol.91, n.12, pp.885-902.  Epub 08-Mar-2024. ISSN 0300-9041.


Preeclampsia remains a public health problem in Mexico and is currently the leading cause of maternal death. Its incidence is 47.3 cases per 1000 live births. Pre-eclampsia has consequences for the mother and the fetus, so there is a need to validate effective screening models for early diagnosis. Doppler assessment of the ophthalmic artery continues to be studied because it provides valuable information on intracranial hemodynamic changes that occur before the symptomatic course of the disease.


To analyze the recommendations of different authors who have evaluated the use of ophthalmic artery Doppler as a screening model in the prediction and early diagnosis of pre-eclampsia.


Retrospective study based on the search exhaustive search of different databases of meta-analyses and randomized clinical trials describing in detail the population studied and the ophthalmic artery parameters evaluated.


Twenty-two publications were identified and after screening, 8 articles were excluded as duplicates, 2 for not meeting the inclusion criteria and 1 for being in a language other than English; finally, 11 titles were reviewed, and another 60 articles were reviewed to complement the study topic.


Doppler evaluation of the ophthalmic artery is a simple, rapid, reproducible, safe, and noninvasive test that can be used to evaluate the ophthalmic artery.
