Maternal Coagulation Disorders and Postpartum HemorrhageSILVER, ROBERT M. MD; MAJOR, HEATHER MDClinical Obstetrics & Gynecology: March 2010 - Volume 53 - Issue 1 - pp 252-264 doi: 10.1097/GRF.0b013e3181cef930 Postpartum Hemorrhage Abstract Author Information Abstract Disorders of coagulation are relatively uncommon as a sole cause of postpartum hemorrhage. Coagulation disturbances should be suspected in patients with a family history of such abnormalities and patients with a history of menorrhagia. Clinical circumstances may also suggest coagulation defect as a cause of postpartum hemorrhage. Diagnosis of a coagulation disorder often requires a high index of suspicion and should not be overlooked in the evaluation of obstetric hemorrhage.
