The 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 that was 6/5mmHg higher (p
To assess the feasibility of a blood pressure self-monitoring intervention for managing pregnancy hypertension.
Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. Although acute severe hypertension carries with it a poor prognosis, treatment is often delayed and not universal.
Pregnancy in patients with pulmonary hypertension is associated with increased risk of maternal and fetal death. Physiological changes during pregnancy, labor and the postpartum period may all lead to acute decompensation of chronic right heart failure with rapid progression to circulatory collapse. As such, guidelines discourage planned pregnancies in women suffering from pulmonary hypertension. There are, however, rare cases of pulmonary hypertension which have previously been undiagnosed and only become ...
To test the hypothesis that ibuprofen is equivalent to acetaminophen in its effect on postpartum blood pressure in women with gestational hypertension or preeclampsia without severe features.
To assess the maternal and fetal outcome in women with mild to moderate chronic hypertension on antihypertensive drug (methyldopa or nifedipine) therapy compared to no medication.
Chronic hypertension and associated cardiovascular disease are among the leading causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality in the United States. Chronic hypertension in pregnancy is associated with a host of adverse outcomes, including preeclampsia, cesarean delivery, cerebrovascular accidents, fetal growth restriction, preterm birth, and maternal and perinatal mortality. There are several key issues related to the diagnosis and management of chronic hypertension in pregnancy where data are l...
It is generally accepted that activity of K channels maintain resting membrane potential and uterine quiescence during pregnancy, which is, at least in part, mediated by down-regulation of ATP-sensitive K (K) channels. Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) is associated with pre-term and late pre-term labour. Here, we have used real time RT-PCR to compare mRNA levels of K channel subunits in PIH parturient and control parturient. We have found that Kir6.1, a pore forming, myometrial K channel subunit is down...
Pulmonary hypertension is a term used to describe a complex multifactorial group of conditions diagnosed by an elevated mean pulmonary artery pressure of 20 mm Hg or higher on right heart catheterization. The diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension in pregnancy is important, as it is associated with high rates of maternal morbidity and mortality, even with modern management. Diagnostic testing is important for establishing the diagnosis, type, and severity of pulmonary hypertension, which in turn, dictates trea...
Hypertensive disorders are prevalent among pregnant women with pre-existing diabetes, but the prevalence and impact of white coat hypertension are unknown. Measurement of home BP before initiation of antihypertensive treatment is necessary to identify white coat hypertension since international guidelines recommend that white coat hypertension is left untreated. The aim of this study, conducted among women with pre-existing diabetes, was therefore to examine the prevalence of white coat hypertension in earl...
Pulmonary hypertension in pregnant women is associated with high mortality and morbidity despite significant improvement in prognosis. Women with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) should be still advised against pregnancy and advised on effective contraceptive methods. Pregnancy may be manageable in women with well controlled PAH or mild pulmonary hypertension (sPAP
Preeclampsia (PE) is a common pregnancy-related disorder associated with cardiovascular long-term disease. Eighty percent are late-onset PE, occurring after 34 gestational weeks, and can present with severe symptoms. Magnitude and reversibility rate of maternal cardiovascular changes after severe late-onset PE have not been characterized. This study therefore evaluated longitudinal dynamics of maternal cardiovascular changes after severe late-onset PE.
This is a brief summary of the Society of Obstetric Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (SOMANZ) evidence-based guideline for the management of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP) and hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). The full guideline and executive summary including auditable outcomes are freely available on the SOMANZ website [https://www.somanz.org/guidelines.asp]. The guideline includes a proposed SOMANZ definition of NVP and HG and evidence-based practical advice regarding the investigation and manage...
Emerging evidence suggests that bariatric surgery improves pregnancy outcomes of women with obesity by reducing the rates of gestational diabetes, pregnancy-induced hypertension, and macrosomia. However, it is associated with an increased risk of a small-for-gestational-age fetus and prematurity. Based on the work of a multidisciplinary task force, we propose clinical practice recommendations for pregnancy management following bariatric surgery. They are derived from a comprehensive review of the literature...
Hypertension professionals from Asia have been meeting together for the last decade to discuss how to improve the management of hypertension. Based on these education and research activities, the Hypertension, brain, cardiovascular and renal Outcome Prevention and Evidence in Asia (HOPE Asia) Network was officially established in June 2018 and includes experts from 12 countries/regions across Asia. Among the numerous research and review papers published by members of the HOPE Asia Network since 2017, public...
Estimates of adherence to antihypertensive treatment in pregnancy are limited; identifying non-adherence could facilitate intervention and optimise blood pressure control. This study aimed to evaluate adherence to antihypertensive treatment amongst pregnant women with chronic hypertension using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry instrumentation. Spot urine samples collected from women who were randomised to labetalol or nifedipine were assessed. Samples from 74 women were includ...
Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is the most common inherited bleeding disorder. Most patients with mild and moderate VWD can be treated effectively with desmopressin. The management of severe VWD patients, mostly affected by type 2 and type 3 disease, can be challenging. In this article we review the current diagnosis and treatment of severe VWD patients. We will also discuss the management of severe VWD patients in specific situations, such as pregnancy, delivery, patients developing alloantibodies against vo...
The hypertension control rate in China is much lower than that in developed countries. Self-management among elderly patients with hypertension can improve blood pressure control; thus, it is necessary to explore its association with individual and social environmental factors.
The new Chinese hypertension guideline comprehensively covers almost all major aspects in the management of hypertension. In this new guideline, hypertension remains defined as a systolic/diastolic blood pressure of at least 140/90 mm Hg. For risk assessment, a qualitative approach is used similarly as in previous Chinese guidelines according to the blood pressure level and the presence or absence of other risk factors, target organ damage, cardiovascular complications, and comorbid diseases. The therapeut...
To describe patient outcomes, management of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, and evaluate provider knowledge of practice guidelines at a tertiary care center in urban China.
The global burden of hypertension, currently estimated at 1 billion, is a leading Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) in Sub Saharan Africa. In Tanzania, the reported prevalence of hypertension is 25%. Inherent limitations of the healthcare system to control hypertension include inadequate provider knowledge, system capacity, medication access, and patient awareness, all of which hinder effective screening and disease management. To assess the quality of hypertension screening and patient counseling, we conducte...
To identify circRNA expression profiles in the placentae of severe preeclampsia (SPE) and normal pregnant (NP) women.
To assess the prognostic value of electrocardiographic atrial fibrillation in older hypertensive people in the randomized, placebo-controlled Hypertension in the Very Elderly Trial.
