Clinical Trial

Postpartum Cardiovascular Dysfunction in Preeclampsia

Study Description

Persistent Postpartum Cardiovascular Dysfunction in Patients With Preeclampsia

The investigators plan to enroll women with PE prospectively to evaluate incremental cardiovascular risk in those who have PE with severe features. This study includes detailed echocardiographic evaluation at several time points. With the current proposal, the investigators aim to collect blood to evaluate several biomarkers to determine if there is a correlation with short and medium-term cardiovascular risk. This opens the door to earlier detection, treatment and improved cardiovascular outcomes.
