Abstract

1. Capillary permeability (CP) is elevated in late normal pregnancy, when compared to postpartum values.

2. In women with pregnancy associated hypertension (PAH), pregnancy CP levels are not different from postpartum and are less than in normal pregnancy.

3. These changes in capillary permeability are not explained by alterations in serum albumin.
