101. Diagnostic accuracy of placental growth factor in women with suspected preeclampsia: a prospective multicenter study Full Text available with Trip Pro

Diagnostic accuracy of placental growth factor in women with suspected preeclampsia: a prospective multicenter study Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a major contributor to death and disability for pregnant women and their infants. The diagnosis of preeclampsia by using blood pressure and proteinuria is of limited use because they are tertiary, downstream features of the disease. Placental growth factor (PlGF) is an angiogenic factor, a secondary marker of associated placental (...) dysfunction in preeclampsia, with known low plasma concentrations in the disease.In a prospective multicenter study, we studied the diagnostic accuracy of low plasma PlGF concentration (<5th centile for gestation, Alere Triage assay) in women presenting with suspected preeclampsia between 20 and 35 weeks' gestation (and up to 41 weeks' gestation as a secondary analysis). The outcome was delivery for confirmed preeclampsia within 14 days. Of 625 women, 346 (55%) developed confirmed preeclampsia. In 287

107. Angiogenic factors as diagnostic tests for preeclampsia: a performance comparison between two commercial immunoassays (Abstract)

Angiogenic factors as diagnostic tests for preeclampsia: a performance comparison between two commercial immunoassays Placental growth factor and soluble Fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 may be potential diagnostic markers of preeclampsia. We compared performances of 2 immunoassays, the Triage placental growth factor assay and the Elecsys soluble Fms-like tyrosine kinase-1/placental growth factor ratio in diagnosing preeclampsia.A single site, case-control study of 44 patients with preeclampsia (...) and 84 matched normal pregnant controls. Samples were collected at the time of diagnosis. Assays were performed according to product inserts.Both assays had optimal performance in diagnosing early-onset preeclampsia with area under the receiver operating characteristic curves of 0.99 (Triage: 100% sensitivity, 96% specificity; Elecsys: 64% sensitivity, 100% specificity for early-onset preeclampsia).

Supplementation with vitamins C and E during pregnancy for the prevention of preeclampsia and other adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes: a systematic review and metaanalysis. To determine whether supplementation with vitamins C and E during pregnancy reduces the risk of preeclampsia and other adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes.Systematic review and metaanalysis of randomized controlled trials.Nine trials involving a total of 19,810 women were included. Overall, there were (...) no significant differences between the vitamin and placebo groups in the risk of preeclampsia (9.6% vs 9.6%; relative risk, 1.00, 95% confidence interval, 0.92-1.09). Similar results were obtained when subgroup analyses were restricted to women at high risk or low/moderate risk for preeclampsia. Women supplemented with vitamins C and E were at increased risk of developing gestational hypertension and premature rupture of membranes, and decreased risk of abruptio placentae. There were no significant

111. Kidney disease after preeclampsia: a systematic review and meta-analysis (Abstract)

Kidney disease after preeclampsia: a systematic review and meta-analysis Preeclampsia (the development of proteinuria and hypertension after 20 weeks of gestation) is common; however, there is uncertainty about the natural history of subsequent kidney disease. Our objective is to undertake a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine whether women with a history of preeclampsia are at increased risk of subsequent kidney disease.Systematic review and meta-analyses of observational (...) studies.Studies examining kidney outcomes in women with a history of preeclampsia compared with women with unaffected pregnancies.From MEDLINE and EMBASE searches, we included case-control and cohort studies of kidney outcomes at least 6 weeks postpartum in women with and without a history of preeclampsia. 2 independent reviewers determined study eligibility, extracted data, and assessed quality.

113. Preeclampsia-eclampsia and the risk of stroke among peripartum in Taiwan Full Text available with Trip Pro

Preeclampsia-eclampsia and the risk of stroke among peripartum in Taiwan The occurrence of preeclampsia-eclampsia during pregnancy has been reported to increase the risk of stroke in mainly Western populations. However, few studies have evaluated stroke risk in Asian populations and followed women beyond the early postpartum period. Thus, the present study determined the risk of stroke in women in Taiwan during pregnancy and the first postpartum year.A population-based cohort study (...) was performed on 1,132,019 parturients during 1999 to 2003 using a dataset linking birth certificates and National Health Insurance hospital discharge data. Stroke-free survival rates were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method, and the log-rank test was used to examine the effect of preelampsia-eclampsia on the prevalence of stroke. Sociodemographic factors and obstetric complications were used in multivariate logistic regression models to determine the adjusted odds ratios of preeclampsia-eclampsia

115. Maternal smoking, preeclampsia, and infant health outcomes in New York City, 1995-2003 Full Text available with Trip Pro

Maternal smoking, preeclampsia, and infant health outcomes in New York City, 1995-2003 A number of previous studies have reported an inverse association between maternal smoking and preeclampsia. Additionally, some have suggested that smokers who develop preeclampsia have worse maternal and fetal outcomes than nonsmokers who develop preeclampsia. The authors examined the relation of smoking to preeclampsia among 674,250 singleton pregnancies in New York City between 1995 and 2003. Although (...) smoking was associated with a reduced risk of preeclampsia overall (adjusted odds ratio = 0.88, 95% confidence interval: 0.82, 0.94), no association was found for preeclampsia superimposed on chronic hypertension (adjusted odds ratio = 1.04, 95% confidence interval: 0.90, 1.21). Furthermore, the apparent protection conferred by maternal smoking was restricted to women aged < or =30 years. Contrary to previous reports, the authors found evidence of a negative interaction between smoking

Correlation of catheterized and clean catch urine protein/creatinine ratios in preeclampsia evaluation To examine whether clean catch urine specimens correlate with catheterized specimens for determination of protein/creatinine ratios in pregnant women being evaluated for preeclampsia.Sixty pregnant women who were at least at 20 weeks of gestation were enrolled. Patients with ruptured membranes, vaginal bleeding, or urinary tract infections were excluded. Midstream clean catch urine specimens (...) , with a correlation coefficient of 0.897 (P<.001). When results were categorized by degree of proteinuria using a cutoff of 0.3, sensitivity and specificity of the clean catch protein/creatinine ratios were 95.2% and 97.4%. When using a more conservative cutoff of 0.19, sensitivity and specificity of the clean catch protein/creatinine ratios were 96.4% and 75.0%.Clean catch and catheterized urine specimens correlate well in women with suspected preeclampsia.

119. Interactions between smoking and weight in pregnancies complicated by preeclampsia and small-for-gestational-age birth Full Text available with Trip Pro

Interactions between smoking and weight in pregnancies complicated by preeclampsia and small-for-gestational-age birth Cigarette smoking protects against preeclampsia but increases the risk of small-for-gestational-age birth (SGA). Regarding body weight, the converse is true: obesity elevates rates of preeclampsia but reduces rates of SGA. The authors assessed the combined effects of smoking and weight among US women developing preeclampsia or SGA, studying 7,757 healthy, primigravid women (...) with singleton pregnancies in 1959-1965. Smoking (never, light, heavy), stratified by prepregnancy body mass index (BMI (weight (kg)/height (m)(2)); underweight, overweight, obese), was examined in relation to preeclampsia and SGA. Among underweight (BMI <18.5) and normal-weight (BMI 18.5-24.9) women, smoking decreased the risk of preeclampsia (for heavy smoking, light smoking, nonsmoking, test for trend p = 0.002 for underweight and p = 0.009 for normal weight) after adjustment for age, race

120. Preeclampsia and the Risk of End-Stage Renal Disease. (Abstract)

Preeclampsia and the Risk of End-Stage Renal Disease. It is unknown whether preeclampsia is a risk marker for subsequent end-stage renal disease (ESRD).We linked data from the Medical Birth Registry of Norway, which contains data on all births in Norway since 1967, with data from the Norwegian Renal Registry, which contains data on all patients receiving a diagnosis of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) since 1980, to assess the association between preeclampsia in one or more pregnancies (...) and the subsequent development of ESRD. The study population consisted of women who had had a first singleton birth between 1967 and 1991; we included data from up to three pregnancies.ESRD developed in 477 of 570,433 women a mean (+/-SD) of 17+/-9 years after the first pregnancy (overall rate, 3.7 per 100,000 women per year). Among women who had been pregnant one or more times, preeclampsia during the first pregnancy was associated with a relative risk of ESRD of 4.7 (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.6 to 6.1
