Diazepam is used as an anticonvulsant as well. Infant growth and stroke in adult life: Hypotensives may be given if needed. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors: Labetalol, atenolol, oxprenolol and propranolol. Its increase is propotionate to serum creatinine.

Are perinatal and maternal outcomes different during expectant management of severe preeclampsia in the presence of intrauterine growth restriction?

Neutrophils activation causes damage and dysfunction of the vascular endothelium leading to platelets aggregation, coagulation activation, hypertension and proteinuria. Inhibit the formation of angiotensin II from the angiotensin I. Management General measures Hospitalisation is mandatory. Aetiology The exact cause is unknown but cerebral ischaemia and oedema were suggested.

Expression of the nonclassic histocompatibility antigen HLA-G by preeclamptic placenta. More than 10 convulsions.

Vascular spasm, haemorrhage, exudate and rarely retinal detachment in severe cases. Placental thrombosis, infarction and abruptio placentae. She should lie undisturbed in this position for min.

Family history of pre-eclampsia in first-degree relative. The criteria that define pre-eclampsia have not changed over the past decade.


In pre-eclampsia, this differentiation process goes awry. When emergency delivery is not required, labor can be induced by cervical ripening. Delivery of the foetus and placenta is the only real treatment of pre-eclampsia. Anti-thrombin – III activity: Risk of preeclampsia in second-trimester triploid pregnancies.

This chronic placental ischemia causes fetal complications, including intrauterine growth retardation and intrauterine death. It reduces the central sympathetic drive. Uterine artery Doppler at 11—14 weeks of gestation to screen for hypertensive disorders and associated complications in an unselected population. A maternal autosomal recessive gene or a foetal genetic component could be responsible. Recent studies have shown that cytotrophoblast invasion of the uterus is actually a unique differentiation pathway in which the fetal cells adopt certain attributes of the maternal endothelium they normally replace.

Expectant management is possible for mild pre-eclampsia to limit the risk of induced preterm delivery, but for severe pre-eclampsia, delivery remains the rule due to the increased risk of maternal and fetal complications. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Secondary to endocrine disorders: Increased vascular endothelial growth factor and endoglin levels, combined with increased sFlt-1 and decreased placental growth factor during the first trimester, is associated with a significantly increased risk of pre-eclampsia.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand. Screening women at high risk and preventing recurrences are key issues in the elampsia of pre-eclampsia. Recurrent pre-eclampsia in next pregnancies. It is indicated in the treatment of eclamptic convulsions as well as for secondary prevention of eclampsia, thus replacing treatment by diazepam, phenytoin, or the combination of chlorpromazine, promethazine, and pethidine.

Pathophysiology During normal pregnancy, the villous cytotrophoblast invades into the inner third of the myometrium, and spiral arteries lose their endothelium and most of their muscle fibers. If necessary, monitoring can be performed in an intensive care unit. Recent data show the protective role of heme oxygenase 1 and its metabolite, carbon monoxide, in pregnancy, and identify this as a potential target in the treatment of pre-eclampsia. This can identify the women in risk of developing PIH and hence prophylaxis against it can be achieved by anti-platelets as aspirin.

In a recent nested case-control study, second trimester maternal serum cystatin C, C-reactive protein, and uterine artery mean resistance index were observed to be independent predictors of pre-eclampsia. The presence of one or more of the following signs indicates the need for immediate delivery: Care for respiratory system by: Delivery at 37 completed weeks as intrauterine foetal death may result from deteriorating placental functions.

Normal or retinal vessels spasm, oedema, exudate and papilloedema oedema of the optic disc.
