Epilepsy is a common neurological disease that affects approximately 12.5 million women of childbearing age worldwide [1]. Compared with healthy individuals, women with epilepsy (WWE) often have increased risk of pregnancy complications, for example, gestational hypertension, pre  ­ eclampsia, post-partum hemorrhage, antepartum hemorrhage, placental abruption premature rupture of membranes, preterm labor, and cesarean section [2–6]. Furthermore, infants of WWE who take antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are at an additional risk of major congenital malformations (MCMs) [7,8], neurodevelopmental delays [9], ...

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, including gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia, occur in up to 10% of pregnancies and are associated with increased life-long cardiovascular risk. Physical activity improves cardiovascular health in pregnancy and may lower the risk of developing hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. However, a minority of pregnant women comply with the recommended level of physical activity. Adequate knowledge on the physiological effects of exercise in healthy pregnancy could help to overcome potential barriers as pregnancy is a unique window of opportunity to improve health outcomes for both moth...

AbstractCompare echocardiographic phenotypes of women presenting with peripartum heart failure. A retrospective case –control study of pregnant women (n = 86) presenting with PP-HF symptoms (i.e., dyspnea, PND, orthopnea) and objective examination and laboratory findings (lung congestion, elevated JVP and/or HJR, elevated brain natriuretic peptide [BNP] and pulmonary edema on chest X-ray). Three distinct phe notypes based on echocardiographically-defined LVEF were identified: (a) PP-HF with preserved ejection fraction (PP HFpEF, LVEF: >  50%); (b) PP-HF with midrange ejection fraction (...

This study evaluated the predictive value of longitudinal salivary uric acid measurement.Material and methodsPregnant women (N = 137) from 20 weeks of gestation were recruited at St. Richards Hospital, Chichester, UK, for this prospective cohort study. Weekly samples of salivary uric acid were analyzed until delivery. Information regarding pregnancy and labor were obtained from the patient ’s record after delivery. Independent t‐tests were used to compare mean levels of salivary uric acid in women with hypertensive complications and adverse fetal outcomes to women with normal pregnancies. Main outcome measures were...
