Early Onset Preeclampsia Dinner Symposium
Feb. 4, 2016 7 - 9:30pm
Early Onset Preeclampsia (EOP) defined as Preeclampsia arising before 34 weeks gestational age is a rare but extremely critical condition occurring in about 0.3% of all pregnancies. Growth (% change) in the incidence of EOP is outpacing other types of preeclampsia, and other modern public health challenges including diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. EOP is particularly vexing as it is one of the leading causes of prematurity in the United States and Worldwide. While expectant management in selected patients has now become “standard of care” many controversies regarding the diagnosis and management remain. In addition, many new therapies are currently in development which could ultimately impact medical practice of this difficult to manage condition.
