What's already known about this?
- Studies have shown that predictive models for PE at 22–24 weeks that combines demographic, clinical, and sonographic data achieve detection rates for early onset PE of about 100% (85–100 CI), with 10% false positive results. These kinds of models can also be applied in the first trimester of pregnancy.
What does this study add?
- A clinical, one step aproach, for the first trimester prediction of early onset PE.
