Patient experience of pregnancy-related venous thrombosis: A phenomenological study

This study used a descriptive phenomenological approach to explore the lived experience of women diagnosed with VTE in pregnancy and the perinatal period. The study setting was a London, university affiliated hospital. The sample consisted of nine women with deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism in pregnancy or up to six weeks post-partum, diagnosed in the last two years. Semi-structured interviews were undertaken using an interview guide. Interviews were transcribed and analysed using phenomenological descriptive analysis.

Authors: Nourollahpour Shiadeh M, Cassinerio E, Modarres M, Zareiyan A, Hamzehgardeshi Z, Behboodi Moghadam Z Abstract β-thalassaemia major (BTM) has a high prevalence worldwide and is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. The aim of this review is to provide an illustrative overview of the reproductive health and pregnancy related issues in females with β-thalassaemia. A literature search was performed in four international databases (1980-2018) to identify the potentially relevant articles. Common reproductive health disorders are hypo-gonadotrophic hypogonadism, infertility, delayed or ...

Authors: Sucker C Abstract Venous thromboembolisms and pulmonary embolisms are one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in pregnancy. The increased risk of thrombotic events caused by the physiological changes during pregnancy alone does not justify any medical antithrombotic prophylaxis. However, if there are also other risk factors such as a history of thromboses, hormonal stimulation as part of fertility treatment, thrombophilia, increased age of the pregnant woman, severe obesity or predisposing concomitant illnesses, the risk of thrombosis should be re-evaluated - if possible by a coagulation speciali...

Conclusion: Chinese women had a substantially lower risk of venous thromboembolism during pregnancy and the postpartum period compared to that of Caucasians. The occurrence of pregnancy-related venous thromboembolism was largely confined to the early pregnancy period, probably related to the adoption of thromboprophylaxis, a lower rate of Cesarean section, and early mobilization.

We present the case report of a 26-year-old woman who became pregnant following the successful treatment of severe CTEPH by utilizing BPA. We conclude that patients undergoing effective BPA for CTEPH can consider becoming pregnant if followed closely by a multidisciplinary team, including experts in thrombosis, pulmonary hypertension and obstetrics.
