Metadata[+] Show full item record
For women at increased risk, low-dose aspirin (LDA) reduces the risk of developing preeclampsia by 17%. Women at high risk have a 25% reduction in developing preeclampsia. Additionally, treated women demonstrated a reduction in preterm delivery, perinatal death, and the incidence of small-for- gestational-age (SGA) infants. (SOR A, based on systematic reviews and randomized controlled trials [RCTs].)
