More about coalgulation tests and what we should know:
Can a blood clot cause problems during delivery? Actually it's the treatment for a blood clot that can cause problems with delivery. What are the possible dangers if you are on blood thinners:
Does fertility therapy increase the risk of longer term cardiovascular outcomes? We are showing here the relation between fertility therapy and cardiovascular disease:
In pregnancy the uterus can compress the left iliac vein and may explain why DVT is significantly more common on the left side in pregnancy (>80% of cases).
DVT is more commonly diagnosed in the pelvic venous system in pregnancy (>60% of cases) compared with the non-pregnant population.
Colleagues, this is an interesting video to see:
The use of assisted reproductive technology (ART) has increased tremendously in the past three decades. During the process of ART, supraphysiological estradiol levels with exogenous hormone administration can result. One major complication of this intervention, Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), is associated with both arterial and venous thromboembolic complications. Thromboprophylaxis should be considered for patients who develop an OHSS moderate to severe for a prolonged period of 1-2 months beyond the resolution of OHSS clinical, and also be considered for patients with a known thrombophily inherited or acquired while undergoing ART.
