Pre-eclampsia: Best practice advice for second and third trimester of pregnancy
Pre-eclampsia is a common and life-threatening complication of pregnancy with serious consequences for both mothers and offspring. In July 2021, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics published a literature review to provide guidance on predication, risk stratification, monitoring and management of pre-eclampsia in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. This supplement provides pragmatic advice for health professionals as it covers different resources settings by considering the feasibility, acceptability and ease of implementation of each recommendation.

Anyone interested in future collaboration in this field of research, you are welcome to contact our key investigator Prof. Liona POON from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, CUHK. Prof. Poon’s research focuses on the prediction and prevention of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. These include developing screening models for the prediction of aneuploidies, preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction, gestational diabetes, macrosomia, stillbirth, spontaneous preterm birth and induced labour.
