Abstract

Introduction: Nowadays, high risk pregnancies are one of the difficulties in gynecology that can result in many complications for fetus. In these pregnancies, different tests such as NST, BPP, OCT, Doppler sonography and etc can be used to evaluate fetus health status. Since standard biophysical profile needs more accuracy and skill, this study was performed to evaluate relationship between standard BPP and modified BPP with neonatal outcome, so that if there was significant relationship, we could use modified BPP as a replacement of standard BPP. Method: this analytic-prospective study was performed on 106 high risk pregnant women at their third trimester referred to Emam Reza hospital in 2012, if they had no emergency problem leaded to emergent termination of pregnancy. To evaluate fetus health status, both standard BPP and modified BPP were spontaneously used. These tests were repeated once or twice weekly and if delivery was performed, last BPP score was compared with neonatal outcomes. Data analysis was performed by SPSS software (version 14) and Chi-square, and t-student tests. PResults: In the evaluation of last results of standard BPP, 88 cases (83.1) of patients were normal BBP and 18 (16.9) were abnormal. In modified BPP, 78 cases (73.6) were normal and 28 (26.4) were abnormal. There was significant relationship between neonatal outcome and standard BPP (P<0.05). But, there was no significant relationship between modified BPP and neonatal outcomes (P>0.05). There was significant relationship between modified BPP and standard BPP (P=0.003). Conclusion: Regarding to significant relationship between modified BPP score and standard BPP score, so, modified method can replace the hard and time taking standard method, and in the cases of abnormal modified method, we can use standard BPP or other methods of fetus health evaluation.
