22. Effect of ibuprofen vs acetaminophen on postpartum hypertension in preeclampsia with severe features: a double-masked, randomized controlled trial

Effect of ibuprofen vs acetaminophen on postpartum hypertension in preeclampsia with severe features: a double-masked, randomized controlled trial Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug use has been shown to increase blood pressure in nonpregnant adults. Because of this, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggests avoiding their use in women with postpartum hypertension; however, evidence to support this recommendation is lacking.Our goal was to test the hypothesis (...) that nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, adversely affect postpartum blood pressure control in women with preeclampsia with severe features.At delivery, we randomized women with preeclampsia with severe features to receive around-the-clock oral dosing with either 600 mg of ibuprofen or 650 mg of acetaminophen every 6 hours. Dosing began within 6 hours after delivery and continued until discharge, with opioid analgesics available as needed for breakthrough pain. Study drugs were encapsulated

23. Aspirin for Evidence-Based Preeclampsia Prevention trial: effect of aspirin on length of stay in the neonatal intensive care unit

Aspirin for Evidence-Based Preeclampsia Prevention trial: effect of aspirin on length of stay in the neonatal intensive care unit Preeclampsia is a major pregnancy complication with adverse short- and long-term implications for both the mother and baby. Screening for preeclampsia at 11-13 weeks' gestation by a combination of maternal demographic characteristics and medical history with measurements of biomarkers can identify about 75% of women who develop preterm preeclampsia with delivery (...) at <37 weeks' gestation and 90% of those with early preeclampsia at <32 weeks, at a screen-positive rate of 10%. A recent trial (Combined Multimarker Screening and Randomized Patient Treatment with Aspirin for Evidence-Based Preeclampsia Prevention) has reported that in women identified by first-trimester screening as being at high risk for preeclampsia, use of aspirin (150 mg/d from the first to the third trimester), compared to placebo, reduced the incidence of preterm preeclampsia, which

24. Use of Antihypertensive Drugs During Preeclampsia (PubMed)

Use of Antihypertensive Drugs During Preeclampsia Treatment of pregnancy-related hypertensive disorders, such as preeclampsia (PE), remain a challenging problem in obstetrics. Typically, aggressive antihypertensive drug treatment options are avoided to prevent pharmacological-induced hypotension. Another major concern of administering antihypertensive drugs during pregnancy is possible adverse fetal outcome. In addition, management of hypertension during pregnancy in chronic hypertensive

25. Meta-analysis on the effect of aspirin use for prevention of preeclampsia on placental abruption and antepartum hemorrhage

Meta-analysis on the effect of aspirin use for prevention of preeclampsia on placental abruption and antepartum hemorrhage Impaired placentation in the first 16 weeks of pregnancy is associated with increased risk of subsequent development of preeclampsia, birth of small-for-gestational-age neonates, and placental abruption. Previous studies reported that prophylactic use of aspirin reduces the risk of preeclampsia and small-for-gestational-age neonates with no significant effect on placental (...) abruption. However, meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials that examined the effect of aspirin in relation to gestational age at onset of therapy and dosage of the drug reported that significant reduction in the risk of preeclampsia and small-for-gestational-age neonates is achieved only if the onset of treatment is at ≤16 weeks of gestation and the daily dosage of the drug is ≥100 mg.We aimed to estimate the effect of aspirin on the risk of placental abruption or antepartum hemorrhage

A study of the diagnostic value of Inhibin A Tests for occurrence of preeclampsia in pregnant women Hypertensive disorders are common during pregnancy, and are among 3 important causes of maternal death. Preeclampsia occurs in 3 to 5% of pregnancies. Early diagnosis of this disorder can lead to better pregnancy outcomes.The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between inhibin A serum levels during second stage pregnancy screening tests, and incidence and severity (...) version 18 and independent t-test, ANOVA and descriptive statistics were used. P-values less than 0.05 were considered significant.Among the 300 pregnant women who were studied, the gestational age at the time of acquiring blood samples was as follows: 169 cases (56.3%) at 16-17 weeks, 77 cases (25.7%) at 18-19 weeks and 14 cases at 20 weeks (4.7%). In this study, MOM of inhibin A was more than 1.25 in 12 cases that finally, preeclampsia occurred in them. This relationship was statistically

28. Association between insulin resistance and preeclampsia in obese non-diabetic women receiving metformin (PubMed)

Association between insulin resistance and preeclampsia in obese non-diabetic women receiving metformin To examine whether the reduced incidence of preeclampsia in non-diabetic obese pregnant women treated with metformin is mediated by changes in insulin resistance.This was a secondary analysis of obese pregnant women in a randomised trial (MOP trial). Fasting plasma glucose and insulin were measured in 384 of the 400 women who participated in the MOP trial. Homeostasis model assessment (...) of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) was compared in the metformin and placebo groups and in those that developed preeclampsia versus those that did not develop preeclampsia.At 28 weeks, median HOMA-IR was significantly lower in the metformin group. Logistic regression analysis demonstrated that there was a significant contribution in the prediction of preeclampsia from maternal history of chronic hypertension and gestational weight gain, but not HOMA-IR either at randomisation (p = 0.514) or at 28 weeks (p

31. Aspirin versus Placebo in Pregnancies at High Risk for Preterm Preeclampsia. (PubMed)

Aspirin versus Placebo in Pregnancies at High Risk for Preterm Preeclampsia. Preterm preeclampsia is an important cause of maternal and perinatal death and complications. It is uncertain whether the intake of low-dose aspirin during pregnancy reduces the risk of preterm preeclampsia.In this multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, we randomly assigned 1776 women with singleton pregnancies who were at high risk for preterm preeclampsia to receive aspirin, at a dose of 150 mg per day (...) , or placebo from 11 to 14 weeks of gestation until 36 weeks of gestation. The primary outcome was delivery with preeclampsia before 37 weeks of gestation. The analysis was performed according to the intention-to-treat principle.A total of 152 women withdrew consent during the trial, and 4 were lost to follow up, which left 798 participants in the aspirin group and 822 in the placebo group. Preterm preeclampsia occurred in 13 participants (1.6%) in the aspirin group, as compared with 35 (4.3

Frontal lobe meningioma mimicking preeclampsia: A case study We report a case of a left frontal lobe meningioma presenting in a woman with proteinuric preeclampsia in her first term pregnancy. The patient had a background of antepartum migraines that resolved in the second trimester of pregnancy. Postpartum, she required urgent surgery and sustained convulsions after surgery. She had no residual disease and has had another successful pregnancy. This case highlights the importance of cerebral (...) imaging in the context of an atypical clinical course of preeclampsia. Although headaches are common in pregnancy and usually benign, other, more serious, diagnoses should be considered with atypical headaches, a change in the nature of the headache, and headaches that persist despite appropriate treatment. A full neurological examination including fundoscopy to exclude papilloedema should be performed and abnormal findings require further investigation.

34. Screening for Preeclampsia: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement. (PubMed)

Screening for Preeclampsia: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement. Preeclampsia affects approximately 4% of pregnancies in the United States. It is the second leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide and may lead to serious maternal complications, including stroke, eclampsia, and organ failure. Adverse perinatal outcomes for the fetus and newborn include intrauterine growth restriction, low birth weight, and stillbirth. Many of the complications associated (...) with preeclampsia lead to early induction of labor or cesarean delivery and subsequent preterm birth.Preeclampsia is more prevalent among African American women than among white women. Differences in prevalence may be, in part, due to African American women being disproportionally affected by risk factors for preeclampsia. African American women also have case fatality rates related to preeclampsia 3 times higher than rates among white women. Inequalities in access to adequate prenatal care may contribute

38. The Relationship Between Blood Lead Level and Preeclampsia (PubMed)

The Relationship Between Blood Lead Level and Preeclampsia Lead is a heavy metal to which people are commonly exposed. One of the possible mechanisms of tissue damages caused by this toxic metal is oxidative stress, which in turn may cause numerous pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia. The present study was conducted to determine the relationship between maternal Blood Lead Level (BLL) and preeclampsia.The present case-control study was conducted on 158 pregnant women admitted (...) in the control group and 8.04±3.4 μg/dl in the preeclampsia group. The two groups were matching in terms of the mother's age and education and the household income. A significant relationship was observed between BLL and preeclampsia (p=0.028), as per every unit of increase (1 μg/dl) in BLL, systolic blood pressure increased by 0.014 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by 0.013 mm Hg (p=0.004).The results obtained suggest a relationship between BLL and preeclampsia.
