IIRC, the overall rate for superimposed preeclampsia in chronic hypertensive patients is 25%.

Oh ok. Pre e is so conflicting. I thought it was from the placenta not implanting correctly.. If that was the case risk factors really wouldn't matter.. It would just happen randomly?

I know that women with CHT are at greater risk of developing PE, but I don't know how many do in fact get it. I will try to find some stats.
