Pregnancy as a Window to Future Health: Short-term Costs and Consequences

Margerison-Zilko, C., Catov, J.M.
(Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2016;215(4):406–407) Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality among women, but because CVD presents differently in women than in men, traditional methods of early detection are insufficient. In addition, knowledge of CVD in women of reproductive age is lacking. It is known that women with small for gestational age fetuses, preterm labor or preeclampsia are at increased risk of hypertension and cardiometabolic risk after delivery. However, the study by Cain et al is important because it identified the risk of CVD and the cost associated with it in the 5 years following delivery.
