Long-Term Cardiovascular Risk in Women with Hypertension During Pregnancy (JACC December 2019-1)
Description

History of a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy (HDP) among women may be useful to refine atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk assessments. However, future risk of diverse cardiovascular conditions in asymptomatic middle-aged women with prior HDP remains unknown. The objective of this article is to examine the long-term incidence of diverse cardiovascular conditions among middle-aged women with and without prior HDP.
