Background: In this study, the difference between ovarian stromal and uterine artery blood flow measured with color Doppler ultrasound between polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients and patients with ultrasonographic evidence of polycystic were evaluated.

Methods: Serum hormone levels and ultrasonographic and color Doppler analysis were evaluated for 20 patients with PCOS and 20 healthy women with ultrasonographic evidence of polycystic.

Results: There were significant difference between uterine artery pulsatility index (PI), uterine artery resistance index (RI), ovarian stromal artery PI and ovarian stromal artery RI measurements of PCOS and healthy women with ultrasonographic evidence of polycystic groups (P values respectively; P < 0.01, P < 0.05, P < 0.01, P < 0.01). In PCOS group ovarian stromal artery RI values were inversely correlated with androstenedione levels (r = -0.536; P < 0.05). Also in PCOS group uterine artery PI values were positively correlated with androstenedione levels (r = 0.536; P < 0.05).

Conclusion: In patients with PCOS uterine artery PI and RI values are higher than women with ultrasonographic evidence of polycystic while ovarian artery PI and RI values were lower. Ovarian stromal artery RI value is inversely proportional to the serum androstenedione level while exchange value of uterine artery PI varies in direct proportion to the serum androstenedione level for PCOS patients.
