Pre-eclampsia 2nd and 3rd Trimester

Diagnosis of the second and third trimester of pregnancy

Why undergoing this examination?

Pre-eclampsia is a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and damage to internal organs such as the liver and kidneys. This condition, which usually develops after the 20th week of pregnancy, is one of the most common complications during pregnancy and can have serious implications for both the mother and the fetus, requiring careful monitoring and medical interventions when necessary. Severe cases can result in placental detachment, premature birth, organ failure, and seizures. 

Understanding the symptoms, risk factors, and the tests used to diagnose and manage this condition is crucial to ensure the health and well-being of both the pregnant woman and the baby. 

What is this exam?

The Pre-eclampsia 2nd and 3rd Trimester is an examination that assesses the risk of developing pre-eclampsia in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy. The risk analysis is calculated based on an algorithm that combines PlGF levels, blood pressure, and proteinuria determination.

  • Previous pregnancy with pre-eclampsia or if the mother had pre-eclampsia;
