Despite good outcomes, women with Takayasu arthritis fear pregnancy complications

September 22, 2017

Although pregnancy-related concerns are common in patients with Takayasu arteritis, maternal and fetal outcomes appear to be good overall, according to findings

In the population-based study, researchers enrolled 58 women with Takayasu arthritis (TAK), primarily recruiting from a population-based southeast Norway TAK cohort. From medical charts, patient questionnaires and the Medical Birth Registry of Norway (MBRN), researchers extracted data on the number of pregnancies, births and pregnancy outcomes before and after TAK onset. Patient questionnaires were used to retrieve data on pregnancy-related concerns.
