CONNed in Pregnancy

Abstract/Summary:

It is important to have a high index of suspicion for diagnosis of PA in patients with hypertension presenting in pregnancy. Early diagnosis, personalized management with aggressive blood pressure monitoring, adequate therapy, and an multidisciplinary team approach can ensure good outcomes in the mother and the baby. Further research to understand various phenotypes of PA in pregnancy and improved research/reporting of safety of medications in pregnancy is needed.
