About this Book

The first book with a holistic approach to all aspects of care for women with inherited bleeding disorders

Ever wondered about heavy menstrual bleeding that did not seem to have any natural or physical causes?

Ever had patients coming in with a family tree full of bleeding disorders?

Inherited bleeding disorders have an adverse effect on the quality of life of afflicted women. Management of these women and their conditions is challenging and close collaboration between professionals in different specialities is needed. International experts and leaders of clinical research including haematologists, obstetrician-gynaecologists, an anaesthetist and those involved in patient advocacy show you how in this practical guide for clinicians.

Inherited Bleeding Disorders in Women covers the gynaecological and obstetric issues for

  • carriers of haemophilia
  • women with von Willebrand's disease
  • rare bleeding disorders and
  • inherited platelet disorders.

This book includes recent advances in the field and explores areas for future research. The women's perspective and the efforts of advocacy groups are also discussed in the final chapter. These features make this book a unique, comprehensive and multi-disciplinary resource.
