Predictive value of the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio for preeclampsia in twin pregnancies: a retrospective study
Conclusion: An sFlt-1/PlGF ratio of ≤22.2 is potentially indicative of PE absence within 4 weeks in twin pregnancies.PMID:34697976 | DOI:10.1080/10641955.2021.1987455 (Source: Hypertension in Pregnancy)

Diagnosis of preeclampsia in women with diabetic kidney disease
Conclusion: chronic hypertension and the degree of primary kidney injury and dysfunction are crucial determinants of PE development in women with DKD. Proteinuria seems to be the best renal predictive factors of PE.PMID:34697978 | DOI:10.1080/10641955.2021.1987454 (Source: Hypertension in Pregnancy)

The effect of preexisting medical comorbidities on the preeclamptic phenotype: a retrospective cohort study
Conclusion: Women with comorbidities receive earlier intervention than women without comorbidities, which may lead to fewer maternal complications but worse neonatal outcomes.PMID:34697981 | DOI:10.1080/10641955.2021.1991371 (Source: Hypertension in Pregnancy)
