An investigation into whether administration of enalapril given postnatally improves cardiovascular function following preterm Pre-eclampsia’ (PICk-UP)

Hypertensive disease in pregnancy is associated with future cardiovascular disease and, therefore, provides an opportunity to identify women who could benefit from targeted interventions aimed at reducing cardiovascular morbidity. This study focused on the highest-risk group, women with preterm pre-eclampsia, who have an 8-fold risk of death from future cardiovascular disease.
