An earlier study conducted on pre-eclamptic
patients revealed that those with sFlt-1/PlGF ratios < 85 are more likely to be correlated with those women predisposed to obesity, pre-existing diabetes, and limited serious adverse outcomes, than those with sFlt-1/PlGF ratios >85 (65).
Receiver operating characteristic curves were applied to check the diagnostic value of T2* in the estimation of pre-eclamptic
placentas and the best T2* cutoff value, which represents the diagnosis of pre-eclampsia.
Similar finding was reported by Kublickas et al on increasing RI in renal artery of pre-eclamptic

pregnancies," The British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, vol.
"With both the mother and the father passing on their variant genes to their children, this places the child at greater risk of parenting a pre-eclamptic
The purpose of this registry-based study was to compare the obstetric outcomes in primiparous and pre-eclamptic
women younger and older than 35 years.
However, majority of the pre-eclamptic
women do not suffer from any underlying medical conditions.
In a normal pregnancy, angiogenesis, and vascular transformation lead to normal placental development, whereas pre-eclamptic
pregnancies are subject to abnormal angio-genesis and vascular transformation.
The initiation of LMWH therapy is typically used in patients already in higher risk morbidity categories such as those with heparin sensitivity issues, those with described clotting diatheses, in higher risk pregnancies (antiphospholipid antibody patients, pre-eclamptic
), and patients with histories of hypercoagulable states.
Three case-control studies compared normotensive women with pregnancy-induced hypertension or pre-eclamptic
women for the presence of obstructive sleep apnoea (105-107).
The mean pocket depth and missing teeth for pre-eclamptic
patients were not significantly as compared with those of normotensive patients (Table I).
