Oxytocin is a hormone drug used to induce labour in pregnant women and stall post-partum bleeding.
ConclusionsTreatment with warfarin or aspirin both lead to similar outcomes after surgical bAVR. Combining aspirin with warfarin may lead to a small decrease in thromboembolism and mortality but is accompanied by increased bleeding. For TAVR patients, aspirin is equivalent to DAPT for reducing thromboembolism and mortality, with a possible decrease in bleeding.
Authors: Hellgren M, Mistafa O Abstract A systematic review of studies published between 1 January 1985 and 31 August 2017 was performed to analyse the efficacy of the low-molecular-weight heparin, dalteparin, in venous thromboembolism (VTE) treatment and prophylaxis during pregnancy, and to evaluate dosing practices, anticoagulant monitoring and adverse events. A therapeutic dosing throughout pregnancy or followed by reduced doses effectively prevented VTE recurrence. Anti-factor Xa activity was the most commonly used method of dose monitoring. The risk of bleeding with dalteparin was generally minor. Major bleedi...
ConclusionWe report on the use of elective UAE prior to laparoscopic resection of IP, because of signs of strong vascularization on ultrasound. This strategy coincided with a nearly bloodless operation. Literature review suggests that this is one of the effective methods to reduce blood loss intra-operatively.

The process of minor rupture and bleeding results in chronic inflammation, giving rise to a haematocele which often resembles a pelvic mass. Unlike ectopic pregnancy, the level of serum human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in patients with CEP is usually low or u...
