INTRODUCTION Maternal hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia during pregnancy is correlated with fetoplacental endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerotic lesions in fetal arteries. Few studies have reported the distribution of the concentrations of maternal total cholesterol (TCh), lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides during pregnancy. Therefore, we determined maternal lipid concentration during pregnancy and established the percentiles over which fetoplacental endothelial… CONTINUE READING
