OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Dr. Ruxandra Jurcut,
A pregnant women and fetus or lactating mother and baby in general are at increased risk of being impacted by disease and the effects of medication. Specifically, presence of thromboembolic disease and/or specific thrombophilia (i.e. antiphospholipid syndrome) or a mechanical prosthesis may warrant the use of anticoagulation. Definite knowledge of anticoagulation in these situations is warranted.
