Does living donation increase risk of gestational hypertension and pre eclampsia

Does living donation increase risk of gestational hypertension and pre eclampsia?

Yes. Garg et al. compared 131 donor pregnancies with 788 non-donor pregnancies and showed that though the absolute risk of gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia remains small overall, it is about two times greater than in non-donor pregnancies.

In non-donors, 2% developed gestational hypertension versus 5% of donors; 3% of non-donors developed pre-eclampsia versus 6% in the donor group.
