Preeclampsia is responsible for significant maternal and neonatal morbidity and is associated with a substantial economic burden. Aspirin has been shown to be effective in decreasing the risk of preterm preeclampsia; however, there is no consensus on the target population for aspirin prophylaxis. In May 2018, the Gottesfeld-Hohler Memorial Foundation organized a working group meeting with the goal of identifying the optimal preeclampsia risk-assessment strategy and consequent intervention in the United States. The meeting brought together experts from the leading professional societies. We discussed available literature and trends in preeclampsia risk assessment, current professional guidelines for identifying women at risk for preeclampsia, prophylactic use of aspirin in the United States and Europe, cost-effectiveness data, and feasibility of implementation of different assessment tools and preventive strategies in the United States. We identified specific knowledge gaps and future research directions in preeclampsia risk assessment and prevention that need to be addressed before practice change.
