The article presents a study that assessed the association between pre-eclampsia in the first pregnancy and increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. The study used hazard ratios which were adjusted for maternal education, maternal age at first birth, and year of first birth. Evidence showed that the rate of cardiovascular mortality among women with preterm pre-eclampsia was higher than the other women with 2 or more children. Further, it discusses limitations of the study.
