Eclampsia cases drop

13th September 2007

The number of eclampsia and pre-eclampsia cases has dropped by half since 1992, according to new research.

The study was published in the BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The researchers used data from 229 consultant-led maternity units in the UK in 2005-2006.

About 10% of pregnant women in the UK develop the condition. The research team attributed the decrease to improvements in the care of the condition and to the following of "management protocols".
