9780123742131: Chesley's Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy

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. Chesley's Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy, remains one of the beacons to guide this field, recognized for its uniqueness and utility. The Third Edition continues this tradition, focusing 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.

NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION:
* New chapters focusing on recent discoveries in angiogenesis, auto-antibodies and other recent immunological findings, imaging in eclampsa, animal models - where considerable progress has emerged since the previous edition
* Extensive updates to chapters on epidemiology, etiological considerations, pathophysiology, prediction, prevention, and management
* Systematic reviews and metanalysis of trials regarding prediction and antihypertensive treatment
* Discussions on the emerging roles of metabolic syndrome and obesity and the increasing incidence of preeclampsia
* Epodemiological coverage of preeclampsia as a risk factor for future metabolic and cardiovascular disease that permits early intervention and life style changes

Review:

Reviews of the Second Edition:
"Preeclampsia remains a lethal enigma of pregnancy. Encompassing more than just hypertension, it can include abnormalities of platelet behavior and clotting mechanisms and of endothelial, hepatic, and renal function. The first edition of Leon Chesley's Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy (1978) was a scholarly monograph, written by a scientist with a passionate interest in the condition. Since then, the number of maternal deaths from preeclampsia and eclampsia per million pregnancies has been halved in developed countries. Nevertheless, preeclampsia, together with eclampsia, remains one of the two most frequently cited causes of maternal death in the West.
The second edition is a multiauthored book. The three editors are researchers who have made a particular effort to achieve a degree of homogeneity in the presentation. The contents are divided into six main sections, each overseen by one of the three editors. Each chapter is also coauthored by one of the editors, which has resulted in coherence in the writing among chapters. Most of the chapters begin with a paragraph about how the topic was considered by Chesley that emphasizes the forward-looking and comprehensive nature of his interest...
This book is an authoritative compilation of knowledge in the area, with many references from the second half of the 1990s. It should certainly be in the library of every academic department."
--The New England Journal of Medicine
"This book is useful for investigators and physicians in the field of hypertension in pregnancy. It is a well-documented book and each chapter is written by an expert in the field. 4 stars!"
