Preeclampsia (PE) and fetal growth restriction (FGR) are important causes of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Several studies have suggested that the prophylactic use of low-dose aspirin may help to reduce risk in pregnant women. However, the optimal dosage remains unclear. Therefore, these authors performed a systematic review and meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials and evaluated the dose-response effect of aspirin on the prevention of PE and FGR.
