OBJECTIVE Altered production of nitric oxide by the vascular endothelium may influence the pathogenesis of preeclampsia. The aim of this study was to measure circulating levels of nitric oxide metabolites (nitrites) in the uteroplacental, fetoplacental, and peripheral circulation of preeclamptic pregnancies compared with normotensive controls. METHODS Fifteen women with preeclampsia were compared with 16 women with normotensive pregnancies. At cesarean, blood samples were taken from the… CONTINUE READING
