About the Seminar

The Stanford Child Health Research Institute will present its next seminar on Linking Conception, Vascular Health and Preeclampsia

Pregnancy results in dramatic physiologic changes over a short period of time particularly related to the cardiovascular system.  Endothelial dysfunction is a key feature of the obstetric complication of preeclampsia. Women who conceive with assisted reproduction technology are at higher risk of preeclampsia but the mechanisms for this risk are not fully understood.  Drs. Virginia Winn and Frauke von Versen-Höynck will share results from their Pregnancy Outcomes Following Infertility Endothelial Health (POFI-ECH) study which is exploring this question.

Virginia Winn, MD - Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Stanford

Frauke von Versen-Höynck, MD, PhD, MSc - Visiting Assistant Professor, Division of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility Obstetrics & Gynecology, Stanford University School of Medicine; Associate Professor, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Hannover Medical School, Germany
