Aim: In this study, we investigated the course of subsequent pregnancies in patients with HELLP syndrome and the development of chronic maternal diseases. Results: The study population consisted of 50 patients who were treated for HELLP syndrome at 1st Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Semmelweis University between January 1, 1995 and December 31, 2004. There were 35 subsequent pregnancies in 25 patients. Of these there were seven miscarriages, one mid-trimester loss. The incidence of…

The HELLP syndrome: Clinical issues and management. A Review
TLDR
Before 34 weeks' gestation, delivery should be performed if the maternal condition worsens or signs of intrauterine foetal distress occur, and standard corticosteroid treatment is of uncertain clinical value in the maternal HELLP syndrome.
Early-Onset Preeclampsia and HELLP Syndrome: An Overview
TLDR
The literature on the epidemiology, risk factors, pathophysiology, maternal and perinatal outcomes, diagnosis and management of early-onset preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome are reviewed to summarize how these severe pregnancy complications are related to foetal growth and health.
Appraisal of Short- and Long-Term Outcomes of Partial Versus Complete HELLP Syndromes: A Retrospective Cohort Study
TLDR
The prognosis and long-term outcomes were not different between these 2 variants of HELLP syndrome and these two clinical entities represent a continuum of the same pathology, which implies that the approach at management should be uniform.
HELLP Syndrome—Holistic Insight into Pathophysiology
TLDR
The significant role of understanding the underlying pathophysiological mechanism of HELLP syndrome is highlighted and a better knowledge of the disease’s course supports early detection, an accurate diagnosis, and proper management of this life-threatening condition.
Severe early onset hemolysis, elevated liver enzyme, and low platelet-syndrome in 2 subsequent pregnancies: case report and review of the literature
TLDR
Pregnancies after a previous pregnancy complicated by hemolysis, elevated liver enzyme, and low platelet (HELLP) syndrome carry an increased risk of HELLP-syndrome and evaluation of the immunologic status and application of immune-globulins could be diagnostic and therapeutic options in this case.
Hemorrhagic and Liver Disorders of Pregnancy
TLDR
This chapter will focus on placental abruption, placenta previa, and accreta/incretA/percreta disorders as well as imitators that are frequently equally morbid such as thromBotic thrombocytopenia purpura (TTP), atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), and acute fatty liver of pregnancy.
Genetic Aspects of Preeclampsia and the HELLP Syndrome
TLDR
The aim of this study is to review genetic factors involved in development of preeclampsia and the HELLP syndrome using literature search in PubMed and find carriers of the TT and the CC genotype of the MTHFR C677T polymorphism seem to have an increased risk of the HellP syndrome.
HELLP Needs Aggressive Help
TLDR
The aggressive supportive care of failing organs with high dose of steroids will decrease the duration of HELLP syndrome, decreases intensive care and hospital stay of these patients as well as reduction in fetal complications.

Subsequent pregnancy outcome in women with a history of HELLP syndrome at < or = 28 weeks of gestation.
TLDR
Patients with a history of hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count syndrome at < or = 28 weeks of gestation during the index pregnancy are at increased risk for obstetric complications in subsequent pregnancies.
Hellp syndrome: Incidence and maternal-fetal outcome—a prospective study
TLDR
Pre-eclampsia and elampsia may be more severe in the presence of HS with a worsening of maternal prognosis while fetal outcome seems not altered.
Long-term follow-up in patients with a history of (H)ELLP syndrome.
TLDR
(H)ELLP syndrome is a severe complication of pregnancy that has not only short-term but also long-term sequelae andMultiparity, gestational age at delivery <30 weeks, and birth weight in the index pregnancy increased the risk of recurrence of GH in the first subsequent pregnancy significantly.
Twelve steps to optimal management of HELLP syndrome.
TLDR
Use of the 12-step approach to the diagnosis and management of pregnancies complicated by HELLP syndrome has proven to be a successful tool to help achieve the best possible maternal and perinatal outcome.
Maternal hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelet count, and neonatal outcome.
TLDR
The clinical course of 89 neonates born to mothers with the HELLP syndrome was analyzed, finding that infants with a maternal HELLP Syndrome were often small for gestational age and had relatively high incidences of leukopenia, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia.
Risk factors for adverse maternal outcomes among women with HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count) syndrome.
TLDR
Among women with HELLP syndrome, African American race is a risk factor for eclampsia and both acute renal failure and abruptio placentae are associated with disseminated intravascular coagulopathy.
