Infections, chronic hypertension increase risk for stroke in women with preeclampsia

May 25, 2017

Chronic hypertension, infections, underlying prothrombotic conditions and coagulopathies increased risk for pregnancy-associated stroke in women with preeclampsia, according to findings published in Stroke.

“Preeclampsia is a very complex disorder that’s not completely understood,” Eliza Miller, MD, a vascular neurology fellow at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, said in a press release. “Our study sought to discover if there are other risk factors or clues that may help identify the women with preeclampsia who are at the highest risk for pregnancy-related stroke. We were looking for risk factors that could be prevented or treated.”
