SUAREZ GONZALEZ, Juan Antonio et al. Pre-eclampsia/eclampsia predictors in high risk pregnants. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.2, pp.154-161. ISSN 0138-600X.

INTRODUCTION: The hypertensive disorders during pregnancy are very frequent and occur in more then the 10% of all term pregnancies. OBJECTIVE: To determine the risk factors in this group of patients to allow establishing differential working strategies for the social maternal wellbeing. METHODS: A cross-sectional and descriptive study was conducted in 30 pregnant women with risk of pre-eclampsia/eclampsia in the Santa Clara city, Villa Clara province from September, 2009 to January, 2010. RESULTS: Most of patients were nulliparous (70 %), with excessive malnutrition (80 %) and in extreme ages (56.6 %) with predominance of maternal old age (33.3 %), as well as a high percentage of pregnants with metabolic syndrome risk. Authors propose care strategies approaching the risk of these patients during the prenatal care. CONCLUSIONS: Nulliparity, figures of a high level glycemia during the pregnancy screening and the excessive malnutrition were some the more frequent prediction factors for the pre-eclampsia/eclampsia in the study group.
