Our purpose was to assess pregnancy outcomes in women with chronic hypertension from a population with a perinatal mortality of 12 in 1000.
A longitudinal cohort study was performed between 1987 and 1991 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
A total of 337 pregnancies in 298 women with chronic hypertension were followed up.
The following outcomes were statistically more frequent in the hypertensive women than in the general population (p<0.01) : perinatal mortality (45/1000 vs 12/1000), preeclampsia (21.2% vs 2.3%), premature delivery (34.4% vs 15.0%), small-for-gestational-age newborns (1 5.5% vs 6.3%), primary cesarean sections (29.6% vs 14.2%), and gestational diabetes (33.1% vs 12.0%).
