Pre-Eclampsia and platelets

Patient comes in for induction of labor for pre-eclampsia without severe features. They get a CBC on arrival. Platelets are 300. How long is that number valid for you for neuraxial placement? What’s your cut off time for needing a repeat draw? What if pre-E with severe features? There’s no institutional policy at my place, just provider discretion. Just trying to get a feel for what others are doing.

CONCLUSIONS: We propose a simple clinical prediction model with good discriminative performance to predict short-term and longer term PE-related complications. Its usefulness in clinical practice awaits further investigation and external validation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewSequestration ofPlasmodium-infected cells in the placenta causes significant adverse effects on mothers and their fetuses. With progress in understanding placental malaria and associated adverse consequences, this review addresses the situation in an area with high prevalence, in Blue Nile State, Sudan, where protective interventions are not adequately provided.Recent FindingsSeveral studies have confirmed that malaria infection during pregnancy with parasites in the placenta, even at sub-patent level detected by molecular techniques, can result in maternal morbidity, fetal growth restriction, and ...

In this study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between genetic polymorphisms of IL-27 rs153109, and rs17855750 in an Iranian cohort of 170 PE patients and 170 normal pregnant women using the PCR-RFLP method. In the total PE, the frequency of heterozygous and mutant homozygous genotypes of rs153109 was significantly higher, severe, and mild PE groups. The genotypes and alleles frequencies of rs17855750 gene polymorphism were associated with PE susceptibility in total, severe and early-onset sub-group patients. Haplotype analysis of IL-27 rs153109 and rs17855750 polymorphisms revealed that the mutant GG haplotype frequ...

CONCLUSION: Puerperal complications represent a diagnostic challenge. Understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying these complications is fundamental for choosing the most appropriate imaging technique to ensure the correct diagnosis in each case.
