Abstract/OtherAbstract:
AIM: To determine the clinical usefulness of invasive and non-invasive haemodynamic assessment in pre-eclampsia. METHOD: A systematic review of the literature was undertaken, using a MEDLINE electronic search using a combination of MESH headings and textwords. Over 1500 abstracts were perused; we obtained 156 full papers that were related to the subject matter. Of the full papers, 55 yielded relevant information. Hand-searching the reference lists of the retrieved papers completed the search. RESULTS: There are no data from randomized controlled clinical trials illustrating the clinical usefulness of pulmonary artery catheters or echocardiographic techniques in hypertensive pregnancy. There are a wealth of data illustrating the haemodynamic profiles of both untreated and treated pre-eclamptic women. Data are also available comparing right heart and left heart filling pressures, demonstrating a relatively poor correlation between the two values. The clinical impact of either measurement is unclear. Data are available illustrating the correlation between echocardiographic techniques and pulmonary artery catheterization.
