CORRELATION BETWEEN BIOCHEMICAL MONITORING AND MEASUREMENT OF THE WAVE VELOCITY OF BLOOD FLOW IN THE UMBILICAL CORDE OF THE HUMAN FETUS ON THE BACKGROUND OF INTRAUTERINE INFECTION
Recently, there have been more and more reports on the role of intrauterine infection (IUI) in pregnant women in the occurrence of a wide range of obstetric and perinatal complications. To date, there is no generally accepted terminology for this complication. IUI should be considered as a spectrum of infectious and inflammatory processes in various structures of the placenta. The diagnosis of IUI during pregnancy presents considerable difficulties. Verification of IUI is possible only on the basis of a morphological study of the placenta. In this regard, this diagnosis is made mainly retrospectively, after the complications associated with it have been realized. At the present stage, the search for non-invasive markers of subclinical IUI continues. Much attention is paid to the peculiarities of the course of pregnancy, ultrasound signs, study of immune factors. No less challenging than diagnosis is the treatment of IUI. A review of the latest publications on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of IUI during pregnancy was carried out.
