Relationship between the von Willebrand Factor Plasma Concentration and Ultrasonographic Doppler Findings in Pregnancies Complicated by Hypertensive Disorders: A Pilot Study

Conclusion: Our results may confirm the arrangement and severity of endothelial damage in preeclamptic patients and may have identified those patients with a significantly higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease.Gynecol Obstet Invest

ConclusionsThis is the largest series to date reporting>30-day follow-up for patients undergoing venous ablation procedures while receiving anticoagulation and the longest follow-up reported of any series. Durability, safety, and efficacy of vein ablation in patients receiving anticoagulation are comparable to those in control patients. Anticoagulation should not be considered a contraindication to endothermal ablation of the GSV or SSV for symptomatic venous reflux.

Use of MRI helps differentiate between those with good prognosis, which can be offered upfront surgery and the poor prognostic cases where treatment intensification is needed. MRI identified poor prognostic factors are threatened or involved mesorectal fascia, T3 tumors with> 5mm e...

Semin Thromb Hemost DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-3400258Primary hemostasis, similar to other systems in the adjusting and transitioning neonate, undergoes developmental adaptations in the first days of life. Although platelets of neonates do not differ quantitatively compared with those of adults, they functionally present with major differences, thus supporting the theory of a “hypofunctional” phenotype that is counterbalanced by high hematocrit and more potent von Willebrand factor multimers. No clinical effect of bleeding tendency has hence been established so far for healthy term neonates. However, discrepancies in ...

Background: Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is the single most common congenital bleeding disorder, affecting 1% of the population and characterized by deficient and/or defective von Willebrand factor (VWF). Among women with VWD, reproductive tract bleeding is common, with up to 80% developing postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), defined as 24-hr blood loss ≥500 cc after vaginal delivery, or ≥1,000 cc after cesarean delivery. Despite current guidelines suggesting 50 IU/kg plasma-derived VWF (pdVWF) at delivery if VWF:RCo is less than 0.50 IU/ml at the 8thmonth of gestation, PPH occurs even when that level has normalized, and, m...
