Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pregnant women are at an increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and the consequences of an acute event in pregnancy can be debilitating, long-lasting or fatal. Screening for risk factors early in pregnancy and the provision of thromboprophylaxis are useful ways of preventing VTE in some women, but even when performed diligently, acute events are likely to remain common for the foreseeable future. It is therefore important for obstetric and non-obstetric clinicians to recognize the symptoms and signs of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in pregnancy, to understand how a diagnosis can be reached in an effective yet safe manner and to be aware of the available treatment modalities.
