Introduction : Pre?eclampsia occurs in 3?5% of pregnancies and is an important cause of fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide. The most important feature in preeclampsia is hypertension which is due to vasospastic phenomenon in kidney, uterus, placenta and brain.

A study of maternal serum lipids in pregnancies complicated by pre-eclampsia in a cohort of Nigerian women

Pre-eclampsia is associated with elevated serum triglycerides and reduced high density lipoprotein and these findings may serve as screening markers for preeClampsia.


The frequency of dyslipidemia in pregnant women with pre-eclampsia was high and was present in 82(54%) patients, which is one of the most common complications of pregnancy.

Estimation and comparison of serum lipid profile of women with pregnancy induced hypertension and normal pregnancy

The Patient who developed pre-eclampsia have abnormal lipid profile, which may be responsible for endothelial dysfunction, and total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein, very low density cholesterol, triglycerides, and cholesterol were increased in pregnancy induced hypertension when compared to normal pregnancy, which is statistically significant.

Comparison of Preeclampsian Pregnancy by Metabolic Components

In preeclampsia occurring carbohydrate and fat metabolism disorders. Components of the metabolic syndrome such as insulin resistance, obesity, and dyslipidemia contributes to the occurrence of

Lipid Profile Abnormalities in Women with Pre-Eclampsia

It was concluded that lipid profile abnormalities were significantly associated with pre-eclampsia, means it is the major risk factor for eclampsIA.

Frequency of Pregnancy Induced Hypertension in pregnant patients presenting in a tertiary care hospital and Comparison of Serum Lipid Profile in Normotensive and Hypertensive Pregnant Women

Pregnancy induced hypertension is quite frequent among pregnant women and there is significant association between maternal serum dyslipidemia (raised triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL, VLDL and reduced HDL) and pregnancy induced hypertension.

Maternal hyperlipidemia and the risk of preeclampsia: a meta-analysis.

It is demonstrated that women who develop preeclampsia have elevated levels of total cholesterol, non-HDL-C, and triglycerides during all trimesters of pregnancy, as well as lower levels of HDL-C during the third trimester.

Dyslipidemia and the risk of preeclampsia: genetic causes and related modifiers

It is demonstrated that women who develop preeclampsia have elevated levels of maternal total cholesterol, non-HDL-C, and triglycerides during all trimesters of pregnancy and lower levels of HDL-C during the third trimester.

Differences in Serum Lipid Profile Value in Pregnancy and Postpartum on Severe Preeclampsia

Serum lipid profile in pregnancy and postpartum has a significant differences and correlated with preeclampsia, total cholesterol 234.5mg/dl and 192.71 mg/dl, p=0.005 has medium correlation with systole, and total cholesterol, LDL, triglyceride, and VLDL correlated with BP in severe preeClampsia.

Histochemistry of Placental Lipids in Preeclampsia

Abnormal lipid metabolism may be involved in pathogenesis of preeclampsia, which can reduce membrane fluidity and disrupt transport across placental trophoblast and compromise the transport of nutrients to the fetus.



Brief overview of maternal triglycerides as a risk factor for pre‐eclampsia

This data indicates that pre‐eclampsia in women with a history of the metabolic syndrome or high blood pressure is a major risk factor for pregnancy-related morbidity and mortality.

This bulletin will provide guidelines for the diagnosis and management of hypertensive disorders unique to pregnancy (ie, preeclampsia and eClampsia), as well as the various associated complications.

Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy.

Serum lipid levels in pregnancies complicated by preeclampsia.

There was a positive correlation between increased proteinuria and higher VLDL and triglyceride levels in patients with preeclampsia, indicating that the pregnant women who presented elevated lipid levels were more susceptible to cardiovascular disorders and, consequently, pre-eClampsia.

Serum Lipid Levels at 28–32 Weeks Gestation and Hypertensive Disorders

Although many cases of gestational hypertension represent latent essential hypertension based on the lipid levels, some of these women display true pregnancy-induced hypertension or nonproteinuric preeclampsia.

Pre-eclampsia and risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer in later life: systematic review and meta-analysis

A history of pre-eclampsia should be considered when evaluating risk of cardiovascular disease in women, and this association might reflect a common cause for pre- eClampsia and cardiovascular disease, or an effect ofPre-e Clampsia on disease development, or both.

Prepregnancy cardiovascular risk factors as predictors of pre-eclampsia: population based cohort study

Positive associations were found between prepregnancy serum levels of triglycerides, cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, non-high density cholesterol, and blood pressure and risk of pre-eclampsia.

Maternal serum lipid profile in pregnancies complicated by hypertensive disorders

The lipid profiles found in hypertensive pregnant patients could be associated with enhancement of pathological lipid deposition in predisposed vessels such as the uterine spiral arteries and the hypertriglyceridemia found in the hypertensive patients may beassociated with the hypercoagulability reported in pregnancy induced hypertension.
