About this Book

Reproductive hemostasis: A global approach to a global challenge

A hemostatic change in women through their reproductive lifetime is emerging as an issue of global importance. No wonder, as obstetric hemorrhage remains a major cause of maternal mortality in both developed and developing countries. Thrombophilias and pulmonary embolisms are a threat to maternal and fetal well-being.

Hemostasis and Thrombosis in Obstetrics & Gynecology provides a framework for assessing and managing hemostatic disorders in women. Written by an international team, it provides globally applicable guidelines for obstetric hematology. The practical approach to clinical management includes:

  • Hematologic changes in pregnancy
  • Red cell disorders
  • Platelet disorders
  • Inherited and acquired thrombophilia
  • Inherited bleeding disorders
  • Postpartum hemorrhage

Blood and bleeding disorders in women can be managed by obstetrician-gynecologists or hematologists, separately or together. Hemostasis and Thrombosis in Obstetrics & Gynecology provides specialists from both disciplines with the information necessary to manage their patients effectively.
