This research is supposed to determine uterine artery diastolic notch and uterine artery pulsatility role in predict early onset preeclampsia. This research was analytical study with nested case-control design of 70 normal pregnant women with 22-24 weeks gestations which divided to two group namely 35 patients with uterine artery diatolic notch group and another 35 patients without uterine artery diastolic notch. The result of this research found that from ultrasound examinations, 27 patients (38.6%) had unilateral uterine artery diastolic notch, and 8 subjects (11.4%) had bilateral uterine artery diastolic notch. Five subjects (14.3%) had early onset preeclampsia, with no significant difference between uterine artery diastolic notch with early-onset preeclampsia. There is no significant differences in mean uterine artery pulsatility index between subjects with and without early-onset preeclampsia, and between the presence of uterine artery diastolic notch and the incidence of early onset preeclampsia. However, significant difference was found between urine artery index pulsatile value and the incidence of early-onset preeclampsia (P=0.045).
