Conclusions: We suggest that providing adequate education particularly for women in undeveloped countries and facilitating access to the tertiary hospitals have the potential to reduce unfavorable pregnancy outcomes in immigrant women.

This article reviews sex differences in stroke risk and presentation, with a particular emphasis on the unique risk factors women experience throughout the lifespan. RECENT FINDINGS Although prior studies suggested women have worse outcomes after stroke, it is now clear that age, prestroke functional status, and comorbidities explain many of the differences between men and women in stroke severity, functional outcomes, and mortality. Several meta-analyses and large cohort studies have evaluated the risk factors for women related to reproductive factors and found that fewer years between menarche and menopause, pregnancy...

Abstract Ling and colleagues (BJOG 2020 xxxx) have contributed important information on cardiovascular (CV) assessment over the course of pregnancy, with and without aspirin treatment, associated with risk of pre-term pre-eclampsia, as assessed by the multivariable competing risks model at 11-13 weeks. There are a number of important messages in these data. First, women at low- (vs. high-) risk of preterm pre-eclampsia appear to have lower cardiac output (CO), stroke volume (SV), and blood pressure (BP) in early pregnancy, consistent with the hypothesis that maternal CV predisposition plays a major role in pre-ecl...

ConclusionThis study showed a high rate of adverse obstetrical complications without significant impact on live birth rates. Pregnancy did not appear to influence TAK disease activity.Key Points•We observed a high rate of adverse obstetrical complications in women with Takayasu arteritis; however, the rate of live births was high.Pregnancy did not appear to influence TA disease activity.

AbstractChorioangioma is a non-trophoblastic  benign vascular tumour of the placenta affecting fetal outcome. It has no malignant potential. It is usually diagnosed during the 2nd trimester. These are usually found on the fetal side of the placenta, close to the umbilical cord insertion site protruding into the amniotic cavity. Chorioangi omas can be small or large. Small tumours (less than 5 cm) usually have favourable outcome. Large chorioangiomas (more than 5 cm) usually have an unfavourable outcome and may cause maternal complications like pre-eclampsia, ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo provide insight on the imbalance of angiogenic and lymphangiogenic factors in pre-eclampsia, as well as highlight polymorphism in genes related to angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis.Recent FindingsThe pregnancy-specific disorder pre-eclampsia is diagnosed by the presence of hypertension with/without proteinuria, after 20  weeks of gestation. The pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia remains ambiguous, but research over the years has identified an imbalance in maternal and foetal factors. Familial predisposition and gene variation are also linked to pre-eclampsia development. The sFlt-1/PIGF ratio h...
