Pregnancy-related thrombosis and fetal loss in women with thrombophilia

18 March 2009

PhD ceremony: mw. N. Folkeringa, 14.45 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen

Thesis: Pregnancy-related thrombosis and fetal loss in women with thrombophilia

Promotor(s): prof. J. van der Meer (posthumous)

Faculty: Medical Sciences


Pregnancy-related venous thrombosis is a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. The presence of hereditary thrombophilic defects can increase this risk. Thrombophilic defects are also associated with an increased risk of fetal loss. Considering placental thrombosis as a cause of fetal loss, it’s rational to use thromboprophylaxis for its prevention. The aim of this thesis was to assess the absolute risk of pregnancy-related venous thrombosis and fetal loss in women with hereditary thrombophilic defects.
