    Essay On Preeclampsia

    Preeclampsia has been termed a “disease of theories” (Davidson, 2012 p.461) because the exact cause of preeclampsia remains unknown, although there is growing evidence that the placenta plays a central role in the development of the disorder. It has been suggested that preeclampsia occurs from defects in implantation and formation of the placenta. Placental implantation with abnormal trophoblastic invasion of uterine vessels is said to be a major cause of hypertension associated with preeclampsia. Incomplete trophoblastic invasion of the uterine spiral arteries results in failure to transform from thick-walled muscular vessels to saclike flaccid vessels. Placental hypo-perfusion, caused by the incomplete invasion leads to the release of systemic vasoactive compounds that results in an exaggerated inflammatory response, vasoconstriction, capillary leak, hypercoagulability, platelet dysfunction and endothelial damage (Lim, 2016), all which directly correlates to the severity of maternal hypertension.…
