In some cases consultation of maternal fetal medicine and hypertension or nephrology subspecialists may be required. Prevention Primary prevention of pre-eclampsia is based on the detection of modifiable risk factors. Platelets are activated in the microcirculation of the placenta, kidney and liver, release their products as 5-hydroxytryptamine and re-enter the circulation in an exhausted state, unable to respond normally to aggregating agents and having lower level of 5-hydroxytryptamine.
Nonetheless, some presentations of pregnancy-related hypertension combined with clinical or laboratory abnormalities or intrauterine growth restriction should also be considered as potential pre-eclampsia. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.
