Preeclampsia: Risk Factors, Pathogenesis and Potential Treatments investigates the clinical, anamnestic, and biochemical predictors of preeclampsia. As such, a prognostic model based on the co-use of the studied predictors has been developed for the early prediction of late-onset moderate preeclampsia.

The authors summarize some theories suggested to explain the pathogenesis of preeclampsia. The pathogenesis of preeclampsia has not yet been fully clarified and it remains a disease of theories. Furthermore, as it is a human-specific disease, the lack of one-on-one animal modeling and many other factors contribute to poor understanding of the disease pathophysiology.

Additionally, this collection explores the possibilities of the maternal and fetal heart rate variability usage at all stages of management among pre-eclamptic women in a three-stage system.

The concluding review includes sources of literature on the pathogenesis, management and long-term consequences of pre-eclampsia.
