Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

No studies have directly evaluated the effect of aspirin in pregnant women with chronic hypertension only. However, in women with risk factors for preeclampsia, including chronic hypertension, low-dose aspirin administered after the first trimester of pregnancy reduces the risk of preeclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction, preterm birth, and fetal or neonatal deaths (SOR: A, meta-analyses of RCTs).
