Arterial stiffness in normal pregnancy at 11-13 weeks of gestation and risk of late-onset hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

08:00 EDT 10th October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Arterial stiffness in normal pregnancy at 11-13 weeks of gestation and risk of late-onset hypertensive disorders of pregnancy."

We evaluated the possible correlation between pulse wave analysis (PWA) parameters measured during the first trimester of pregnancy in normotensive, low-risk women, and the development of hypertensive disorders later in pregnancy. Our hypothesis was that a still asymptomatic increase in arterial stiffness may potentially precede the onset of overt hypertension in pregnancy and that PWA could detect it.

The beginning third of a human PREGNANCY, from the first day of the last normal menstrual period (MENSTRUATION) through the completion of 14 weeks (98 days) of gestation.

The three approximately equal periods of a normal human PREGNANCY. Each trimester is about three months or 13 to 14 weeks in duration depending on the designation of the first day of gestation.
