BACKGROUND Magnesium sulfate (MgSO4) has been used as a common therapy for preeclampsia and eclampsia for many years. MgSO4 decreases peripheral vascular resistance so as to reduce maternal blood pressure. Whether placental blood vessels react to MgSO4 in the same patterns as that in maternal vessels is largely unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS This study… CONTINUE READING
