  • The complicated preeclamptic patient represents a challenge for the clinician faced with her antepartum or postpartum care. The most serious sequelae of preeclampsia account for a significant portion of maternal morbidity and mortality. Severe preeclampsia also results in an appreciable portion of perinatal morbidity and mortality. In this review, developing trends in the treatment of severe preeclampsia are discussed. Expectant treatment of the patient remote from term, anesthesia choices, and delivery route are reviewed. Developing trends in the pharmacological approach to complicated preeclampsia are discussed. New concepts in the treatment of cerebrovascular preeclampsia and hepatic rupture are outlined and reviewed.
