Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy continues its tradition as one of the beacons to guide the field of preeclampsia research, recognized for its uniqueness and utility. Hypertensive disorders remain one the major causes of maternal and fetal 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 controversial. The fourth edition of Chesley’s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy focuses on prediction, prevention, and management for clinicians, and is an essential reference text for clinical and basic investigators alike. Differing from other texts devoted to preeclampsia, it covers the whole gamut of high blood pressure, and not just preeclampsia.Features new chapters focusing on recent discoveries in areas such as fetal programming, genomics/proteomics, and angiogenesisIncludes extensive updates to chapters on epidemiology, etiological considerations, pathophysiology, prediction, prevention, and managementDiscusses the emerging roles of metabolic syndrome and obesity and the increasing incidence of preeclampsiaEach section overseen by one of the editors; each chapter co-authored by one of the editors, ensuring coherence throughout book
