CONTINUED LEARNING OBJECTIVES: After completing this CME activity, physicians should be better able to assess the long-term cardiovascular consequences after hypertensive pregnancy disorders, evaluate and interpret the evidence regarding biochemical cardiovascular risk factor assessment after pregnancy, and counsel women with a history of hypertensive pregnancy disorders as to the effectiveness of cardiovascular risk factor assessment in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
CONCLUSIONS: Women with previous hypertensive pregnancy disorders have higher glucose, insulin, triglycerides, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels measured after pregnancy compared with women with previous normotensive pregnancies. These biochemical cardiovascular risk factors may identify women who will benefit from primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
TARGET AUDIENCE: Obstetricians and gynecologists, family physicians.
