Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy 4th edition (PDF) continues its tradition as one of the beacons to guide the field of preeclampsia research; recognized for its utility and uniqueness. Hypertensive disorders remain one the major causes of fetal and maternal 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 management is often very controversial. The 4th edition of Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy focuses on prevention; prediction; and management for clinicians; and is an essential reference textbook for clinical and basic investigators alike. Differing from other textbooks devoted to preeclampsia; it covers the whole gamut of high blood pressure; and not just preeclampsia.

  • Discusses the emerging roles of metabolic syndrome and obesity and the increasing incidence of preeclampsia
  • Features new chapters focusing on recent discoveries in areas such as fetal programming; genomics/proteomics; and angiogenesis
  • Each section overseen by one of the editors; each chapter co-authored by one of the editors; ensuring coherence throughout etextbook
  • Includes extensive updates to chapters on pathophysiology; etiological considerations; epidemiology; prediction; prevention; and management
