  1. All 32 pregnancies resulting in life births are evaluated. The indication for caesarean section is evaluated in 24 pregnancies and is subdivided in three groups (maternal/ fetal/ combined maternal and fetal). GFR, glomerular filtration rate. IQR, interquartile range
  2. *two emergency caesarean section due to aortic dissection due to severe hypertensive disorder and major placental abruption
  3. eGFR (CKD-EPI), estimated glomerular filtration rate. aP 0.005 and bP 0.001 versus GFR (CKD-EPI) at pre-pregnancy
