Preeclampsia:Diagnosis and Management

This is a presentation on the old and the new concepts on preeclampsia. The presentation was prepared for physicians in practice and in training. It may be difficult to understand without the presenter but never the less, even non-medical professionals and other persons can learn a lot about this ancient disease for which we still have not found the way to prevent completely. At Kofinas Perinatal, we have noticed over the last 20 years, that the use of Lovenox for the management of thrombophilia has reduced the incidence of preeclampsia in such patients. Other randomized controlled studies have also shown that the use of Lovenox during pregnancy in patients at risk for preeclampsia reduces the incidence of the disease by 88%.
