  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

    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. Vascular mechanical properties and endothelial function with special reference to pregnancy and hormonal influences

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity. Early recognition of vascular changes, both structural and functional, may help to identify individuals at risk for CVD. READ MORE

  4. 4. Preeclampsia and other circulatory diseases during pregnancy : etiological aspects and impact on female offspring

    Author : Helena Salonen Ros; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; preeclampsia; gestational hypertension; pregnancy-induced hypertension; risk factors; heritability; twin study; venous thrombosis; pulmonary embolism; subarachnoid hemorrhage; intracerebral hemorrhage; intracerebral infarction; stroke; intrauterine exposure;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to investigate and compare environmental effects on the liability of developing preeclampsia and gestational hypertension; to estimate the relative importance of genetic and environmental effects on the liability of developing preeclampsia and gestational hypertension; to assess the effect of childbearing on the risk of circulatory diseases; and to explore the effect of preeclampsia on the female offspring anthropometry in early adulthood. We used the Swedish Birth Register to compare the effect of maternal diabetes, multiple birth, smoking, place of birth and obesity, on the liability of developing preeclampsia and gestational hypertension among 10,666 primiparous women.

    Abstract : The incidence of obesity is increasing at an alarming rate worldwide and the epidemic has reached the pregnant population of developed countries. Obesity is associated with several obstetric complications for both the mother, the fetus and the new-born. Today, obesity risk assessment is based on body mass index (BMI). READ MORE
