Excerpt

Preeclampsia (PE) is a multisystem disorder of pregnancy affecting 3–5% of pregnancies [1]. It is a major cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality [2]. PE is defined by the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (ISSHP) as the occurrence of hypertension that develops after the 20th week of pregnancy, accompanied by proteinuria or signs of acute kidney injury, liver dysfunction, neurological manifestations, hemolysis, thrombocytopenia, or fetal growth restriction (FGR) [3]. The maternal vascular malperfusion in PE is characterized histologically by diminished placental size, infarction, abnormal development of the placental villi, and a deficiency of the maternal decidual spiral arterioles [4, 5]. Although the cause of PE is unknown, the accumulated evidence strongly implicates the placenta [6, 7]. …
