[Relationship between constitutional type of systemic hemodynamics and formation of peripheral vitreo-chorioretinal dystrophies during pregnancy].Vestn Oftalmol. 2002 May-Jun; 118(3):20-3.VO
Dynamic observations of 86 pregnant women with peripheral vitreochorioretinal dystrophies (PVCRD) (121 eyes) showed that the condition progressed during pregnancy in 33.8% cases. Decrease of ocular hemodynamics and scleral rigidity were characteristic of pregnancy, being particularly pronounced in OPH gestosis. The highest incidence of PVCRD progress was observed in pregnant women with the hypokinetic type of systemic hemodynamics, being 30% in normal pregnancy and reaching 48% in OPH gestosis vs. 8.3 and 16.6 and 16.6 and 22.7% in the hyper- and eukinetic types, respectively.
