Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy crossing generations

The focus of preeclampsia research continues to broaden with an increasing amount of studies focusing on long-term maternal health implications of pre-eclampsia and now the implications of maternal pre-eclampsia on the cardio-metabolic risks of the off-spring.

ISSHP European Congress 2017

We are pleased to invite you to the European Congress of the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy from 6th – 9th  September 2017 in Berlin.

Preeclampsia is still one of the leading causes of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Although many causes of maternal mortality are well controlled in industrialised countries, preeclampsia-related complications are one of the main reasons why mothers die.

In the last decade, there have been tremendous research efforts in the field of preeclampsia. The European Congress will reflect the interdisciplinarity of the research on preeclampsia. There will be dedicated sessions on basic research, clinical research and also clinical management, screening, prediction and treatment of hypertensive pregnancy disorders. Keynote

Keynote presentations, oral presentations and poster presentations will focus recent developments and hot topics.

As ISSHP’s President-Elect Dr. Laura Magee noted, “Tom is dedicated to the cause, to the women, and to dialogue, even when he is on the receiving end of some aggressive feedback.
