AbstractMany crucial cardiovascular adaptations occur in the body during pregnancy to ensure successful gestation. Maladaptation of the cardiovascular system during pregnancy can lead to complications that promote cardiac dysfunction and may lead to heart failure (HF). About 12% of pregnancy-related deaths in the USA have been attributed to HF and the detrimental effects of cardiovascular complications on the heart can be long-lasting, pre-disposing the mother to HF later in life. Indeed, cardiovascular complications such as gestational diabetes mellitus, preeclampsia, gestational hypertension, and peripartum cardiomyopath...

Abstract OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Migraine is associated with ischemic stroke. Women are 3-fold as likely as men to have migraine, and high estrogen states increase the risk of migraine with aura (MWA), venous thromboembolism (VTE), and of stroke. We review the epidemiological and mechanistic evidence of the migraine-stroke relationship and its risk factors, with a focus on women and conditions that exclusively or predominantly affect them.  METHODS: We performed a search of MEDLINE/PubMed database, then a narrative review of the epidemiological evidence of the migraine-stroke relationship as...

This article outlines the diagnoses of preeclampsia and superimposed preeclampsia. It discusses the pathogenesis of preeclampsia, including abnormal placentation and angiogenic dysfunction. The clinical use of angiogenic markers as diagnostic adjuncts for women with suspected preeclampsia is described, and the limited data on the use of these markers in women with CKD are presented. The role of kidney biopsy in pregnancy is examined. The management of preeclampsia is outlined, including important advances and controversies in aspirin prophylaxis, BP treatment targets, and the timing of delivery. PMID: 32241779 [PubMed...
