We report a case of massive bleeding due to a coagulation disorder associated with acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP); the patient survived by massive transfusion.

After the surgery, which led to massive bleeding in the peritoneal cavity due to the coagulation disorder, she underwent two further operations and three transarterial embolizations.

AbstractDoubling of C-section rates from year 2000 to 2015 globally was declared an eye-opener on October 13, 2018, in FIGO World Congress.

This review addresses issues related to exponentially rising rates, reasons for it, and strategies to reduce. Previous cesarean delivery has main contribution to rising rates as per evidence from the literature search in last 5  years. Focus on optimizing indications of primary C-section resulted in mak...
