Does Chronic Hypertension Cause Fetal Growth Restriction
MF/placental factors: Maternal-fetal and placental etiologies can all cause fetal growth restriction. Severa fetal syndromes can lead to fgr (e.g. Down, patau, triploidy, edwards, noonan's, digeorge). Multifetal pregnancies are at increased risk for fgr; this can result in fetal demise, fetal brain injury, cerebral palsy or even normal outcomes in non-syndromic cases. Placental infarcts, hypertension, lupus: culprits. ...Read more

The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating.

Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Less risk: High BP(hypertension) is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease-stroke, heart attacks and disease, kidney impairment and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries with risk of blockages in other areas of body).
