Managing Heavy Menses and Pregnancy in Patients with Inherited Bleeding Disorders – Sarah O’Brien
This presentation will first review the frequency and patterns of heavy menstrual bleeding in women with inherited bleeding disorders, as well as the available literature regarding management strategies in this patient population. The increased risk of other reproductive bleeding (ovarian cysts and endometriosis) in women with bleeding disorders will also be recognized. We will then review the epidemiology of post-partum bleeding in this patient population, as well as recommended preventive and treatment strategies to reduce post-partum hemorrhage.
Thrombophilia and Pregnancy – Saskia Middeldorp
This presentation will review the epidemiology of thrombophilia and pregnancy-related VTE. The current recommendations for thrombosis prophylaxis (in whom, with what agent, and at what dose) and therapy of acute VTE will be reviewed. Also, practical issues regarding the management of delivery and neuraxial anesthesia in women using anticoagulant therapy while pregnant will be discussed. Furthermore, the association of thrombophilia with pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia and recurrent miscarriage will be summarized, as well as current evidence on treatment with aspirin and / or heparin.
