Additional signs and symptoms that can occur include edema, visual disturbances, headache, epigastric pain, thrombocytopenia, and abnormal liver headache, function. These clinical manifestations are the results of function. mild to severe microangiopathy of target organs such as brain, liver, kidney, and placenta. liver, PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF PREECLAMPSIA PATHOPHYSIOLOGY A state of endothelial dysfunction secondary to excessive amounts of state circulating factors released from the diseased placenta. These factors effect the establishment of a suitable vascular network of the placenta needed to supply oxygen and nutrients to the fetus. needed Molecular/Cellular level Abnormal expression of VEGF and sFlt-1 (Vascular endothelial growth factor – proangiogenic and soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1- anti-angiogenic factors proangiogenic respectively) appear to play a central role. respectively) Increased expression of cytokines, angiotensin, catecholamines, and pro-coagulant Increased factors. factors.

Vaginal Delivery – Lumbar epidural No fetal distress Before catheter placement, r/o coagulopathy and insure adequate volume replacement. Cesarean Delivery – Regional or GA Maternal/and or fetal status dictates the urgency for delivery Use epidural if in place. Maintain volume status. Typically, drops in BP improve Use placental blood flow. placental Spinal anesthesia, in the past, has been controversial due to possibility of severe Spinal hypotension. However, it has been shown to be a safe technique for cesarean delivery in severe preeclampsia. severe General anesthesia is an acceptable way to manage preeclamptic pts, however, there are General associated risks. associated Apiration Airway compromise Cerebral hemmorrhage Pulmnary Edema Case Report Case 38 yo G1P0, 25 wks gestation, was transferred to MHMC/High Risk Pregnancy (from OSH) for management of acute on chronic hypertension (systolic >200 mm Hg). Her pressures were stabilized with magnesium sulfate and hydralazine. No fetal distress. After approx. 48 hrs., pt started to c/o of chest pressure and shortness of breath. Also intermittent episodes of variable decelerations/severe fetal bradycardia occurred. Cardiology consult with echocardiogram was obtained. Pt BP required prn labetolol. High risk team plan was to continue BP control and requested for anesthesia to place an arterial line.

Role of Invasive Hemodynamic Monitoring with Severe Preeclampsia Preeclampsia Most women with severe preeclampsia or eclampsia can be managed Most without invasive hemodynamic monitoring. without A review of 17 women with eclampsia reported that use of a pulmonary review artery catheter aided in clinical management decisions. (ACOG Compendium of Selected Publicatins; J Clin Invest 1993;91:950-960) of No randomized trials support their use in severe preeclamptic patients. Invasive hemodynamic monitoring may prove beneficial in preeclamptics Invasive with severe cardiac disease, renal disease, refractory hypertension, oliguria, or pulmonary edema.
