Comparison of Longitudinal Blood Pressure and Arterial Stiffness in Preeclamptic Women After Delivery

2019-11-03 15:11:09 | BioPortfolio


The investigator measured the arterial stiffness using cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) test in patient with preeclampsia and normal pregnant women to evaluate the longitudinal change of CAVI and their predictors.


This study was a case control study and included 37 women with preeclampsia (PE group) and 36 normotensive women (control group) who gave birth to child at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital.

Cario-ankle vasuclar index (CAVI) was measured at one day, six months and one year after delivery in both group.

The investigator also checked the body weight, blood pressure, lipid profile, serum creatinine, aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) simultaneously with CAVI.

The relationship between the presence of preelampsia and longitudinal changes of CAVI, blood pressure and metabolic indices were evaluated using generalized estimating equation (GEE) method.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Onset of HYPERREFLEXIA; SEIZURES; or COMA in a previously diagnosed pre-eclamptic patient (PRE-ECLAMPSIA).

A complication of PREGNANCY, characterized by a complex of symptoms including maternal HYPERTENSION and PROTEINURIA with or without pathological EDEMA. Symptoms may range between mild and severe. Pre-eclampsia usually occurs after the 20th week of gestation, but may develop before this time in the presence of trophoblastic disease.

A small colorless crystal used as an anticonvulsant, a cathartic, and an electrolyte replenisher in the treatment of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. It causes direct inhibition of action potentials in myometrial muscle cells. Excitation and contraction are uncoupled, which decreases the frequency and force of contractions. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p1083)

A syndrome of HEMOLYSIS, elevated liver ENZYMES, and low blood platelets count (THROMBOCYTOPENIA). HELLP syndrome is observed in pregnant women with PRE-ECLAMPSIA or ECLAMPSIA who also exhibit LIVER damage and abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION.

An ADAMTS protease that contains eight thrombospondin (TS) motifs. It cleaves VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR to control vWF-mediated THROMBOSIS. Mutations in the ADAMTS13 gene have been identified in familial cases of PURPURA, THROMBOTIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC and defects in ADAMTS13 activity are associated with MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; BRAIN ISCHEMIA; PRE-ECLAMPSIA; and MALARIA.
