Hypertensive disorders remain one the major causes of maternal and fetal morbidity and death. It is also a leading cause of preterm birth now known to be a risk factor in remote cardiovascular disease. Despite this, the hypertensive disorders remain marginally studied, and their management is commonly controversial. Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy remains one of the beacons to guide this field, recognized for its uniqueness and utility. The Third Edition continues this tradition, focusing on prediction, prevention, and management for clinicians, and is an essential reference text for clinical and basic investigators alike. Differing from other texts devoted to preeclampsia, it covers the whole gamut of high blood pressure, not just preeclampsia. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION: *

Few areas of clinical practice give rise to more unsubstantiated dogma than hypertension in pregnancy. In this tenth volume in the Handbook of Hypertension series, Dr. P.C. Rubin and his group of authors have presented in each chapter a clear and dispassionate review of the literature. Since in this instance hypertension is a complication of pregnancy, a proper review could only be obtained by breaking down traditional boundaries between disciplines. The contributors to this book are accordingly eclectic, their areas of interest ranging from physiology to epidemiology and from pathology to pediatrics. The book begins with a review of the physiological changes in normal pregnancy followed by a summary of clinical features of the various forms of hypertension which can complicate pregnancy. The next seven chapters deal with what can broadly be described as laboratory aspects of the subject and encompass the placental, renal and hemodynamic changes, the possible roles of prostanoids, the renin-angiotensin system and autonomic nervous system, and finally a review of animal models.

Hypertensive disorders are among the most common medical complications of pregnancy, with an incidence of approximately 6-10%. This spectrum of conditions includes essential hypertension, pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome. For patients with pre-existing hypertension, management ideally commences prior to conception, and continues through pregnancy to the postnatal period. This book provides information on the evidence-based management of women with hypertension throughout pregnancy, supported by important background information on the etiology, risk-factors and pathophysiology of these disorders. Illustrated with accompanying algorithms, tables and lists for quick reference on diagnostic criteria, drugs and side-effects, this book will help clinicians rapidly gain access to the information they need to care for these patients. This will to be of interest to all grades of obstetric trainees as well as specialists, obstetric anesthetists and anesthetic trainees, midwives and maternal-fetal physicians.
