New Study Looks to Improve Future Cardiovascular Prognosis in Pregnant Women with a History of Preeclampsia

A new study being presented this week at the American Society of Echocardiography’s (ASE) 33rd Annual Scientific Sessions in Seattle, Wash., suggests that your blood pressure during pregnancy may impact your long-term heart health.

The research, titled Echocardiographic Characterization of Long-Term Cardiac Function in Women with Preeclampsia, focuses on the heart’s left ventricular mechanics and explores if its function might help explain the mechanisms of the heart that cause long-term cardiovascular conditions in women with preeclampsia.
