Is the placenta the reason preeclampsia occurs, or is it just one more organ affected by an underlying cardiovascular disease?
Maternal hypertensive disorders, especially preeclampsia, increase the chance of childhood mental disorders in offspring.
Results showed that COVID-19 during pregnancy was strongly associated with preeclampsia, independent of any risk factors or preexisting conditions.
Weight loss before and between pregnancy may reduce the risk of preeclampsia in obese or overweight women.
Researchers evaluated the clinical impact of using a biomarker known as placental growth factor (PlGF) in those with suspected preterm preeclampsia.
Researchers found the risk for preeclampsia was 76% higher in a study group of 706 women who had COVID-19 during pregnancy (compared to a group of pregnant women without COVID-19 diagnosis).
Researchers found that both higher BMI and longer interpregnancy interval were linked to an increased chance for pregnancy-induced hypertension.
Researchers found that women with stage 1 hypertension (BP of >130/80) before they became pregnant had a doubled risk for preeclampsia compared to women entering pregnancy with normal blood pressure.
Researchers analyzed pregnancy outcomes in over 650,000 healthy women in the IBM Marketscan® research database (which also included data on paternal health) and found a strong relationship between likelihood of preeclampsia and a partner with 2 or mo...
A dataset of nearly 25,000 women found that a blood pressure cutoff of measurements 140/90mmHg or higher was the most reliable predictor of postpartum readmissions for high blood pressure problems.
There is increasing attention now on possible subtypes for preeclampsia, recognizing that 1) preeclampsia has different presentations and outcomes 2) there is a wide range in risk factors for preeclampsia, and 3) fetal effects like growth restriction...
Research has shown that ionizing radiation (measured by the radon exposure inside one’s home) is linked to having high blood pressure in non-pregnant people. Researchers in this study want to extend this finding into pregnant populations &ndash...
