Details

Hypertensive disorders complicate 5-10% of pregnancies and are a leading cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. This book serves to highlight the increasing importance of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy across the health care continuum.

It provides a comprehensive, evidenced-based and updated review of controversy aspects relating to preeclampsia and other hypertensive complications in pregnancy. It starts with a broad overview of preeclampsia including an extensive introduction explaining definitions and epidemiology of the disease, and the differential diagnosis of preeclampsia. Risk factors such as obesity and diabetes as well as multifetal gestations are presented in separate chapters. Basic concepts dealing with the pathogenesis of the disease are thoroughly covered including the role of adipokines in preeclampsia. Specific attention is given to prediction and prevention of preeclampsia. The book concludes with short and long term maternal outcome.

Written by international experts, this book is a valuable resource for a broad spectrum of clinicians and healthcare professionals dealing with maternal fetal medicine. Medical and nursing students as well as residents in obstetrics and gynecology, and family practice will also benefit from it at any stage of their training. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
