Preeclampsia is a pregnancy complication with serious consequences for mother and infant. The disorder is diagnosed by gestational hypertension and proteinuria but is far more than pregnancy induced hypertension. Preeclampsia is proposed to occur in 2 stages. Stage 1 reduced placental perfusion is postulated as the root cause and to lead to the maternal syndrome, Stage 2. Why perfusion is reduced, how this translates to a maternal disease in some but not all women and what is the linkage of the… Expand

Figures from this paper

A decrease in maternal plasma concentrations of sVEGFR-2 precedes the clinical diagnosis of preeclampsia.
TLDR
A lower maternal plasma sVEGFR-2 concentration precedes the development of preeclampsia, both term and preterm. Expand
The relationship between serum zinc level and preeclampsia
TLDR
Assessment of serum zinc level does not have any clinical values for managing preeclampsia, but based on the relationship between serum zinc concentration and the severity of preeClampsia in this study, it is recommended that assessment of Serum zinc concentration as an index for predicting the severity. Expand
Doppler flowmetry of ophthalmic arteries for prediction of pre-eclampsia.
TLDR
Doppler flowmetry of ophthalmic arteries between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy did not present itself as a good exam for predicting PE and the OARI values were evaluated. Expand
Plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in early-onset severe preeclampsia.
TLDR
Total 25-OH-D is decreased at diagnosis of EOSPE, and further study is needed to understand the impact of vitamin D deficiency on pregnancy outcomes. Expand
Rate of caesarean operation and complications in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
During the period of January 2005 to June 2005, 2365 patients were admitted in different maternity units of a hospital for delivery or pregnancy related complications. Among them 329 patients wereExpand
Comparative Study of Serum Lipid Profile in Pre-eclampsia in a Tertiary Care Hospital, Bangladesh
TLDR
It can be concluded that altered serum lipid levels are seen in pre-eclampsia compared to normal pregnancy. Expand
Blutungen während der Schwangerschaft
TLDR
All physicians involved in the interdisciplinary treatment of hemorrhaging during pregnancy need to be familiar with the specific pathophysiology of he mostatic changes during pregnancy, e.g. elevated hemostatic capacity, reduced anti-coagulation activity and severe alterations of the fibrinolysis system.

Hypoxia and sFlt-1 in preeclampsia: the "chicken-and-egg" question.
TLDR
New evidence is provided that effects of hypoxia are cell type specific and that in placental cytotrophoblasts, hypoxIA induces an excess production of sFlt-1, which leads to VEGF deficiency and, consequently, an antiangiogenic state. Expand
Recent Insights into the pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia.
TLDR
The emerging view described in this presentation is that pre-eclampsia is secondary to the interactions of reduced placental perfusion with diverse maternal factors that alter endothelial function. Expand
Placental debris, oxidative stress and pre-eclampsia.
TLDR
The problem with the placenta is generally considered to be an inadequate uteroplacental circulation leading to placental hypoxia, oxidative stress and, in the most severe cases, infarction. Expand
Early detection of preeclampsia by determination of platelet aggregability.
TLDR
It is concluded that preeclampsia is accompanied by exaggerated platelet aggregability, particularly perceptible early in the course of pregnancy, and proposed collagen-induced whole blood platelet aggregation with correction for the influence of hematocrit and platelet count for early detection of preeClampsia.

Summary of the NHLBI Working Group on Research on Hypertension During Pregnancy.
TLDR
The recommendations of the Working Group are to attempt a clinical trial of antioxidant therapy to prevent preeclampsia and to be complemented by mechanistic research to increase understanding of the genetics and pathogenesis of the disorder. Expand

Pathogenesis and genetics of pre-eclampsia
TLDR
There are genetic components to susceptibility, but the relative contributions of maternal and fetal genotypes are still unclear and whole-genome mapping could ultimately define the causative genes. Expand
Maternal and fetal modulators of lipid metabolism correlate with the development of preeclampsia.
TLDR
A multihit hypothesis for the pathophysiology of preeclampsia is suggested in which maternal obesity and a placental lipolytic hormone converge to adversely affect free fatty acid concentrations in the maternal circulation. Expand
Hypertension in Pregnancy: A Manifestation of the Insulin Resistance Syndrome?
Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH), which includes both gestational hypertension and preeclampsia, is a common and morbid pregnancy complication for which the pathogenesis remains unclear. EmergingExpand
Maternal placental vasculopathy and infection: two distinct subgroups among patients with preterm labor and preterm ruptured membranes.
TLDR
It is possible to identify two subgroups of patients among those who are delivered preterm because of preterm labor or premature rupture of membranes, one with infection of the products of conception and another with maternal placental vasculopathy. Expand
