The objective: the prediction of perinatal complications in pregnant women with obesity and metabolic syndrome by examining the state of the fetoplacental complex and the factors of angiogenesis.

Patients and methods. А survey of 238 pregnant women, of whom 185 with obesity and metabolic syndrome (MS), 53 – with normal body weight. We have studied the content in the peripheral blood of hormones, placental proteins, as well as indicators of endothelial dysfunction in the third trimester of pregnancy by conducting the radioimmunoassay and enzyme immunoassay.

Results. The Presence of overweight and obesity of the First degree has virtually no effect on the functional state of the fetoplacental complex. In pregnant women with II-III degree of obesity and MS changes endocrinological indicators of fetoplacental complex are subcompensated character, as evidenced by the decrease in the level of E2 is 1.3–1.6 times, PG, PL, CG, PRL 86%, while increasing To 1.2–1.6 times in comparison with the control group. Placental dysfunction with sub – and decompensated nature of the flow, in pregnant women with MS and obesity II–III degree, manifested by increased б-FP 1.6–2 times, PAMG 1.5–2.1 times, AMGF 1.3–1.9 times, SSBG 1,2–1,5 times and a decrease in SP1 in 1.3–1.5 times, respectively. In pregnant women with obesity II–III degree and MS is endothelial dysfunction characterized by reduced production of vascular endothelial growth factor is 2.3–2.5 times, placental growth factor 2.2–2.3 times increase in soluble receptor of vascular endothelial growth factor in 3.0–3.3 times in comparison with the control group.

Conclusion. We conducted comprehensive studies show that the prognosis for pregnant women with obesity II–III degree and MS has adverse consequences in terms of the development of perinatal complications. Diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive activities aimed at the dynamic reducing body weight, improving metabolic processes in pregnant women, it is advisable to carry out the program pregravidarnaya training.
