Effect of ACE inhibition on the fetal kidney: decreased renal blood flow

, : Effect of ACE inhibition on the fetal kidney: decreased renal blood flow. Teratology 46(4): 317-321

The kidneys of nine fetuses whose mothers were chronically hypertensive were examined microscopically. Three of these mothers used antihypertensive agents throughout pregnancy including one who used an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. The tubular defects found in these kidneys were compared to the kidneys of 20 normal controls, 13 fetuses with various multiple malformation syndromes and six cases of the twin to twin transfusion syndrome. Evidence from these cases as well as the literature suggest that the primary mechanism by which ACE inhibitions affect development of the fetal kidney is through decreased renal blood flow.
