About The Study: Results of this study involving almost 8.5 million participants in Nordic countries suggest that offspring born to individuals with preeclampsia had increased ischemic heart disease and stroke risk that were not fully explained by preterm or small for gestational age birth, and that the associated risks for stroke were higher for severe forms of preeclampsia.
