  1. 1. Cerebral biomarkers in women with preeclampsia

    Author : Lina Bergman; Helena Åkerud; Anna Karin Wikström; Johan Wikström; Eva Britta Råssjö; Ulf Högberg; Marc Spandermaan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; preeclampsia; eclampsia; biomarkers; S100B; NSE; PRES; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Preeclampsia and eclampsia are among the most common causes of maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity worldwide. There are no reliable means to predict eclampsia or cerebral edema in women with preeclampsia and knowledge of the brain involvement in preeclampsia is still limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Preeclampsia and the Brain : Epidemiological and Magnetic Resonance Studies

    Author : Maria Nelander; Johan Wikström; Anna-Karin Wikström; Inger Sundström Poromaa; Gerda Zeeman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; preeclampsia; eclampsia; seizure; MRI; MRS; IVIM; dementia; cardiovascular disease; magnesium; cerebral organic osmolytes; perfusion; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Preeclampsia is a pregnancy specific syndrome that causes substantial maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. One major contributor to maternal deaths is eclampsia, i.e. when seizures arise in the context of preeclampsia. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biochemical and Epidemiological Studies of Early-Onset and Late-Onset Pre-Eclampsia

    Author : Anna-Karin Wikström; Matts Olovsson; Ulf Eriksson; Solveig Norden-Lindeberg; Göran Berg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Obstetrics and gynaecology; pre-eclampsia; proteinuria; albumin-creatinine ratio; ischaemic heart disease; angiogenesis; sFlt1; oxidative stress; isoprostane; PAI-1; PAI-2; Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar;

    Abstract : Biochemical and epidemiological aspects of pre-eclampsia were investigated, with the main focus on possible pathophysiological differences between early-onset and late-onset disease.In pre-eclamptic women poor correlation was found between albumin-creatinine ratio (ACR) in a random urine sample and total amount of albumin in a 24-hour urine collection.

  4. 4. Carotid Artery Wall Layer Dimensions during and after Pre-eclampsia : An investigation using non-invasive high-frequency ultrasound

    Author : Tansim Akhter; Tord Naessen; Anna-Karin Wikström; Henry Nisell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Systemic lupus erythematosus; normal pregnancy; pre-eclampsia; high-frequency ultrasound; common carotid artery; intima media ratio; cardiovascular disease.; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Pre-eclampsia is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) later in life. The ‘gold standard’ for estimating cardiovascular risk - ultrasound assessment of the common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) - does not convincingly demonstrate this increased risk.

  5. 5. Postpartum infections; prevalence, associated obstetric factors and the role of vitamin D

    Author : Daniel Axelsson; Marie Cedergren; Jan Brynhildsen; Anna-Karin Wikström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Postpartum infections are a major cause of maternal mortality and morbidity worldwide. Breast infection, endometritis, urinary tract infection and wound infections are the most common postpartum infections and together they affect almost 20% of women after childbirth. READ MORE
