Claudio Ponticelli, Gabriella Moroni

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Little information is available about the risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) after preeclampsia. The review of Covella et al. demonstrated that former preeclamptic women have a significant risk of ESRD in the medium term. However, it is still unknown which preeclamptic woman are at higher risk for progressive kidney disease. After delivery, women who had preeclampsia, particularly those with persistent hypertension, symptomatic proteinuria, or microalbuminuria, should receive a regular checkup for kidney disease.
