Pre-eclampsia Prevention

Reading time: 1 min

Current screening methods performed in the first 3 months of pregnancy can calculate the patient's risk of having preeclampsia during pregnancy.

To calculate the risk of pre-eclampsia, factors such as the patient's age, personal history, ultrasound markers and analytical markers are taken into account.

In patients with a high risk of pre-eclampsia, specific gestational monitoring is recommended for the early detection of the disease and frequent ultrasound testing for the diagnosis of intrauterine growth retardation.

In addition, treatment with low-dose acetylsalicylic acid is recommended, as this has been shown to reduce the appearance of pre-eclampsia by up to 50% in pregnant women at risk.
