Serial profile of flow-mediated dilatation in primigravida for prediction of preeclampsia and gestational hypertension.

Serial profile of flow-mediated dilatation in primigravida for prediction of preeclampsia and gestational hypertension. Hypertens Pregnancy. 2018 Oct 01;:1-8 Authors: Malhotra AS, Goel P, Chaudhary A, Kochhar S, Kaur G, Bhagat A Abstract OBJECTIVE: Assessment of endothelial dysfunction for prediction of gestational hypertension/preeclampsia (GH/PE). METHODS: Serial assessment of flow-mediated vasodilatation (FMD) of brachial artery was done in first, second, and third trimesters, and within 6 weeks of delivery in primigravida (n = 654). Logistic regression was used to assess the predictive value of FMD for the development of GH/PE. RESULTS: Significant fall in FMD was observed from first trimester to third trimester but decrease in FMD in GH/PE group (57%) was more marked as compared to normal (39%) (p

Logan, Wessel Ganzevoort, Ross Welch, Jim G. Thornton, Peter von DadelszenAbstractThe international CHIPS Trial (Control of Hypertension In Pregnancy Study) enrolled 987 women with chronic (75%) or gestational (25%) hypertension. Pre-eclampsia developed in 48%; women remained on their allocated BP control and delivered an average of two weeks later. ‘Less tight’ control (target diastolic BP 100 mmHg) achieved BP t...

Cavalli, Marcelo R. LuizonAbstractNAMPT is a biomarker for endothelial dysfunction, but its relationship with nitrite (marker of NO formation) and soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFLT-1) has not been previously evaluated in preeclampsia. Therefore, we measured plasma NAMPT and sFLT-1 levels using enzyme immunoassays and plasma nitrite concentrations using an ozone-based chemiluminescence assay. NAMPT was positively correlated t...

ConclusionsVVV during pregnancy, especially SBP-CV, was independently associated with GH and PE. These results suggested that VVV could provide additional information to identify pregnant women at high risk of GH or PE. Further studies exploring prospective association between VVV, GH and PE are warranted.

The hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP), comprised of preeclampsia (PE) and gestational hypertension (GHTN), are independent risk factors for future maternal cardiovascular disease (CVD). Epidemiologic evidence has demonstrated that women with HDP have abnormal cardiovascular (CV) risk factors in the early postpartum period, but this has not been fully characterized.
