Abstract
Of the 390 screened pregnancies with uterine fibroids, arterial hypertension was present it 17 (4.35%) women age 22-46 years. In 23.5% cases, uterine fibroids were detected first time in pregnancy. The diameter of myomatous nodules ranged between 3.4 - 15.7 cm. Arterial hypertension was the manifest of Hypertonic IIB disease in 29.4% , Hypertonic IIA disease in 17.6%, gestational hypertension in 5.8%, mild preeclampsia in 22.3%, and severe preeclampsia in 5.8% cases. The average increase of systolic pressure was 30 mmHG, with an average of 9.2 mmHG difference of diastolic pressure between two arms in supine position (p < 0.02). All women with preeclampsia had preexisting conditions, including hypertensive disorders, stage I-III obesity in 4 cases, chronic pyelitis in 8 cases, history of miscarriages in 2 cases. In 2 cases, there was a steady decrease of diastolic arterial blood pressure postpartum. Arterial blood pressure was normalized in puerperal woman with no preexisting hypertonic disease.
