Özet

Aim: To investigate whether there is alteration both right and left kidney lenght, parenchymal thickness, renal arterial, venous blood flow measurements in normotensive reproductive age women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Material and Method: Forty women with PCOS according to Rotterdam criteria and thirty-six healthy volunteers women were included in our study. Hormonal, biochemical analysis, renal Doppler ultrasonography were performed and were investigated in terms of both left and right renal lenght, parenchymal thickness, peak systolic velocity (PSV), resistive index (RI), venous impedance index (VI), metabolic characteristics having insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, serum lipid concentration. The student t test and pearson corelation test were used for statistical analysis. Results: The measurements for kidneys were not different between women with PCOS and healthy women. The peak systolic velocity of mean renal artery was lower in PCOS group. The mean renal venous impedance also was higher in PCOS group than control group. The mean renal resistive index was slightly higher in PCOS but not statistical significant. In bivariate corelation analyse including all patients, it was seen that BMI, WHR, level of serum fasting glucose, insulin, LDL, trigliserides were positively related with mean renal length and mean parenchymal thickness measurements. Discussion: We found that there was alterations kidney blood flow in normotensive reproductive age women with PCOS. This findings may indicate results of long term renal and cardiovascular complications of PCOS.
