61. Gestational Hypertension and Preeclampsia in Living Kidney Donors. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Gestational Hypertension and Preeclampsia in Living Kidney Donors. Young women wishing to become living kidney donors frequently ask whether nephrectomy will affect their future pregnancies.We conducted a retrospective cohort study of living kidney donors involving 85 women (131 pregnancies after cohort entry) who were matched in a 1:6 ratio with 510 healthy nondonors from the general population (788 pregnancies after cohort entry). Kidney donations occurred between 1992 and 2009 in Ontario (...) , Canada, with follow-up through linked health care databases until March 2013. Donors and nondonors were matched with respect to age, year of cohort entry, residency (urban or rural), income, number of pregnancies before cohort entry, and the time to the first pregnancy after cohort entry. The primary outcome was a hospital diagnosis of gestational hypertension or preeclampsia. Secondary outcomes were each component of the primary outcome examined separately and other maternal and fetal

Low-Dose Aspirin Use for the Prevention of Morbidity and Mortality From Preeclampsia: U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement. Update of the 1996 U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation on aspirin prophylaxis in pregnancy.The USPSTF reviewed the evidence on the effectiveness of low-dose aspirin in preventing preeclampsia in women at increased risk and in decreasing adverse maternal and perinatal health outcomes, and assessed the maternal and fetal harms (...) of low-dose aspirin during pregnancy.This recommendation applies to asymptomatic pregnant women who are at increased risk for preeclampsia and who have no prior adverse effects with or contraindications to low-dose aspirin.The USPSTF recommends the use of low-dose aspirin (81 mg/d) as preventive medication after 12 weeks of gestation in women who are at high risk for preeclampsia.

69. Diagnostic accuracy of placental growth factor in women with suspected preeclampsia: a prospective multicenter study Full Text available with Trip Pro

Diagnostic accuracy of placental growth factor in women with suspected preeclampsia: a prospective multicenter study Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a major contributor to death and disability for pregnant women and their infants. The diagnosis of preeclampsia by using blood pressure and proteinuria is of limited use because they are tertiary, downstream features of the disease. Placental growth factor (PlGF) is an angiogenic factor, a secondary marker of associated placental (...) dysfunction in preeclampsia, with known low plasma concentrations in the disease.In a prospective multicenter study, we studied the diagnostic accuracy of low plasma PlGF concentration (<5th centile for gestation, Alere Triage assay) in women presenting with suspected preeclampsia between 20 and 35 weeks' gestation (and up to 41 weeks' gestation as a secondary analysis). The outcome was delivery for confirmed preeclampsia within 14 days. Of 625 women, 346 (55%) developed confirmed preeclampsia. In 287

To estimate the contributions of biological aging, historical trends, and birth cohort effects on trends in pre-eclampsia in the United States.Population based retrospective study.National hospital discharge survey datasets, 1980-2010, United States.120 million women admitted to hospital for delivery.Temporal changes in rates of mild and severe pre-eclampsia in relation to maternal age, year of delivery, and birth (...) cohorts. Poisson regression as well as multilevel age-period-cohort models with adjustment for obesity and smoking were incorporated.The rate of pre-eclampsia was 3.4%. The age-period-cohort analysis showed a strong age effect, with women at the extremes of maternal age having the greatest risk of pre-eclampsia. In comparison with women delivering in 1980, those delivering in 2003 were at 6.7-fold (95% confidence interval 5.6-fold to 8.0-fold) increased risk of severe pre-eclampsia. Period effects

Mediators of the association between pre-eclampsia and cerebral palsy: population based cohort study.

80. Pulmonary artery flow catheters for directing management in pre-eclampsia. (Abstract)

Pulmonary artery flow catheters for directing management in pre-eclampsia. Gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia can cause fluid shifts. Pulmonary oedema and renal failure can result from these shifts. Fluid management is crucial in managing pre-eclampsia, especially in the context of pulmonary oedema and renal failure. Pulmonary artery catheterisation may be a method of effectively monitoring fluid status and thus aid in the management of renal failure and pulmonary oedema in the context (...) of pre-eclampsia.To assess the safety and efficacy of pulmonary flow catheters in women with severe pre-eclampsia in preventing and managing of renal failure and pulmonary oedema or both.We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials Register (30 April 2012).Randomised trials evaluating the use of the pulmonary artery catheterisation in the management of pre-eclamptic and eclamptic antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum women.We did not identify any randomised controlled
