Less-Tight versus Tight Control of Hypertension in Pregnancy

.   .   

This open, multicentre trial assigned women with nonproteinuric or gestatational hypertension to less tight control (target diastolic BP 100 mmHg) vs tight control (target diastolic BP 85 mmHg) with no difference observed in the primary outcome of pregnancy loss, high level neonatal care or overall maternal complications (secondary outcome).  However, the less tight control group did have a higher frequency of severe maternal hypertension (40.6% vs 27.5%, p<0.001).
