Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy, Fourth Edition (PDF) continues its heritage as one of the beacons to steer the area of preeclampsia research. Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy, Fourth Edition is acclaimed for its usability and distinctiveness. Hypertensive diseases continue to be one of the primary reasons for morbidity and mortality in newborns and their mothers. In addition to this, it is one of the primary causes of premature birth, which is increasingly recognized as a risk factor in cardiovascular disease. Despite this, hypertensive illnesses continue to receive only a limited amount of research, and their therapy is frequently very contentious. The fourth edition of Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy is an essential reference textbook for clinical and basic investigators alike. The emphasis of this edition is on the prevention, prediction, and therapy of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy for clinicians. It covers the complete spectrum of high blood pressure, not just preeclampsia, which distinguishes it from other textbooks solely devoted to the subject of preeclampsia.
- In this article, the emerging roles of metabolic syndrome and obesity, as well as the rising prevalence of preeclampsia, are discussed.
- Contains brand new chapters that concentrate on contemporary findings in fields such as fetal programming, genomics/proteomics, and angiogenesis.
- Each chapter is co-authored by one of the editors, and each component of the etextbook is edited by at least one editor to ensure coherence throughout the entire publication.
- Included are major revisions to the chapters on pathophysiology, etiological factors, epidemiology, prediction, prevention, and management.
