The potent and now longstanding evidence of the association between placentation-related disorders and cardiovascular disease should be translated into clinical practice in order to introduce a preventive approach to future obstetric and cardiovascular diseases. The purpose of this review is to integrate cardiovascular risk/disease and obstetric complications, which are linked by endothelial dysfunction, as windows of opportunity for improving women's health. Questionnaires adaptable to local… Expand
New Approach for the Prevention of Preeclampsia
TLDR
In this review, pathophysiological events leading to endothelial dysfunction related to preeclampsia are described and analyzed and preventive measures are proposed, including diet, healthy lifestyle, medical evaluation, controlled weight gain, calcium intake, low dose acetylsalicylic acid, adequate hydration and reasonable physical activity to complement the prevention plan. Expand
Considerations to Model Heart Disease in Women with Preeclampsia and Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
The current in vivo, in vitro and ex vivo model systems used to study preeclampsia, IRI and HF are compared and novel models that better mimic the complex scenario described in this article are compared. Expand
Overlapping pathogenic signalling pathways and biomarkers in preeclampsia and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
This bioinformatics approach uses the wealth of scientific data available in public repositories to gain a deeper understanding of the overlapping pathogenic mechanisms of associated diseases, which could be explored as biomarkers or targets to prevent long-term cardiovascular complications such as hypertension and HFpEF following preeclampsia. Expand
Overlapping Pathogenic Signalling Pathways and Biomarkers in Preeclampsia and Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
This bioinformatics approach which uses the wealth of scientific data available in public repositories can be helpful to gain a deeper understanding of the overlapping pathogenic mechanisms of associated diseases, which could be explored as biomarkers or targets to prevent long-term cardiovascular complications such as hypertension and HFpEF following preeclampsia. Expand
Preeclampsia and long-term coronary artery disease: How to minimize the odds?
TLDR
The current scientific evidence regarding the correlation between PE and long-term coronary artery disease is summarized and postpartum and lifetime management for high-risk patients are proposed in order to minimize morbidity and mortality within this population. Expand
Current Updates on Pre-eclampsia: Maternal and Foetal Cardiovascular Diseases Predilection, Science or Myth?
TLDR
The question of whether PE is just a pointer or predisposing factor to maternal development of CVDs in later life begs for answers to facilitate definitive clinical solutions and preventive approaches. Expand
Long-Term Cardiovascular Effects of Pregnancy-Related Disorders
TLDR
More importance is given to risk-stratify these women with complicated pregnancy and recommendation to prevent the long-term effects and more importance to manage during pregnancy and peripartum period. Expand
The Evidence of Aspirin Use in Prevention of Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes (APOs): Should It Be Continued Long Term After an APO?
Aspirin is one of the only proven therapeutic options for the prevention of preeclampsia, an important adverse pregnancy outcome with detrimental short- and long-term consequences to a woman’sExpand
An Integrative Biomedical Informatics Approach to Elucidate the Similarities Between Pre-Eclampsia and Hypertension
TLDR
This paper investigates the overlapping pathogenic mechanisms between pre-eclampsia and adult hypertension using an integrative biomedical informatics strategy that combined text mining techniques to identify genes and proteins, with geneset analyses, generating knowledge on the pathways and mechanisms involved in these conditions. Expand
Racial Differences in DNA Methylation-Based Age Acceleration in Preeclamptic and Normotensive Pregnancy
TLDR
The findings in a small sample demonstrate the need for additional studies to not only investigate the complex pathophysiology of preeclampsia, but also the relationship between race and biological aging, which could provide further insight into racial disparities in pregnancy and birth. Expand

Learning from the placenta: acute atherosis and vascular remodeling in preeclampsia-novel aspects for atherosclerosis and future cardiovascular health.
TLDR
The transient appearance of acute atherosis of uterine wall spiral arteries seen in pregnancy complications and the molecular interaction between trophoblast, smooth muscle and vascular cells could add important elements to explain arteriosclerosis and stenosis in cardiovascular disease. Expand
Preeclampsia and Future Cardiovascular Health: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Preeclampsia is associated with a 4-fold increase in future incident heart failure and a 2-fold increased risk in coronary heart disease, stroke, and death because of coronary heart or cardiovascular disease. Expand
Shared Constitutional Risks for Maternal Vascular-Related Pregnancy Complications and Future Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
Intergenerational similarities in cardiovascular risk profiles between women after preeclampsia or intrauterine growth restriction and their parents are demonstrated, suggesting shared constitutional risks for vascular-related pregnancy complications and future cardiovascular disease. Expand
Persistence of Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Women With Previous Preeclampsia
TLDR
Serum uric acid and microalbuminuria may be mechanistic mediators of heightened risk, along with impaired endothelial function in preeclampsia, at least 5 years after index pregnancy. Expand
Pregnancy complications and maternal cardiovascular risk: opportunities for intervention and screening?
TLDR
Evidence is increasingly linking the maternal vascular, metabolic, and inflammatory complications of pregnancy with an increased risk of vascular disease in later life (table), and this article summarises the evidence, notes important areas for further research, and discusses potential practical implications.

TLDR
Increased risks of CVD morbidity and mortality in relation to abruption were evident for ischaemic heart disease, acute myocardial infarction, hypertensiveHeart disease, non-rheumatic valvular disease, and congestive heart failure. Expand
Endothelial Dysfunction: A Link Among Preeclampsia, Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, and Future Cardiovascular Events?
TLDR
It is proposed that women with unexplained recurrent miscarriages are also at increased cardiovascular risk and the identification and correction of endothelial dysfunction detected during the reproductive stage on obstetric outcome and on cardiovascular diseases needs to be elucidated. Expand
