More than five thousand Spanish women with at least one pregnancy were included in the study. Those who suffered from pregnancy-induced high blood pressure were more likely to experience permanent changes in heart structure and function ten years later. These included thickening of the heart wall, abnormal left ventricular geometry, and decreased ejection fraction (the fraction of blood the heart chamber can push out).
