SANTOS, Carolina De los; LARRABURU, Soledad  and  GONZALEZ, Valentín. Pre-eclampsia and hereditary thrombophilia. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2021, vol.6, n.2, pp.31-35.  Epub July 01, 2021. ISSN 2393-6797.

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are one of the leading causes of maternal and perinatal mortality worldwide. Pre-eclampsia has been estimated to complicate 2-8% of pregnancies worldwide. Multiple risk factors have been associated: history of pre-eclampsia, chronic arterial hypertension, pre-gestational diabetes, multiple gestation, chronic kidney disease, and some autoimmune diseases (such as antiphospholipid syndrome and systemic lupus erythematosus). A review is carried out on the general measures of prevention of pre-eclampsia.

Keywords : pre-eclampsia; hereditary thrombophilia.
