Hospitalization in pregnancy and childbirth greatly increases the thromboembolic risk of these patients. The application of a protocol for assessing the risk of VTE reduces mortality and morbidity of these phenomena.
Name: EnoxaparinDescription: Patients who score higher or equal to 3, receive a prophylactic dose of enoxaparin. The first dose of enoxaparin is administered 8 hours after vaginal or abdominal delivery. Subsequent doses are administered daily for up to 15 days. The dose depends on patient weight.Type: Drug
Name: No interventionDescription: Hospitalized patients that score less than three are not prescribed enoxaparin.Type: Other
Description: Identify early risk factors for VTE in hospitalized pregnant women and prescribe appropriate prophylaxis to reduce the incidence, morbidity and mortality of VTE. The patients that score ≥ 3 will receive enoxaparin. This group will be analyzed for the incidence of adverse outcomes: VTE, bleeding, death until 3 months post hospitalization. This same analysis will be done in those patients who have not received heparin. The patients that could not receive heparin due to bleeding risk will be analyzed also. The analysis of the score will also describe if the higher the score, the higher the index of adverse events, mainly when it is not possible to prescribe the prophylaxis.Measure: Number of hospitalized pregnant patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE), death and adverse events after applying an in hospital risk score for thrombosis at 12 weeks post discharge. Time: 4 years
There is one SNP
Risk score description: score 3 - previous thrombosis/thromboembolism, homozygous mutations, combined thrombophilia risk factors, antiphospholipid syndrome, cancer(stomach, pancreas, lung), inflammatory conditions, lupus, sickle cell disease, nephrotic syndrome, heart disease; Score 2 - Protein C deficiency, Protein S deficiency, heterozygous F5 Leiden, heterozygous F2 G20210A mutation, cancer(last 6 months), chemotherapy(last 6m), immobility, bed rest >4d prior to C-section, current serious infections, BMI≥40 kg/m2 , age≥40y, lung disease(cyanosis), postpartum hemorrhage >1L; Score 1 - age ≥ 35 and ≤39 y, parity ≥3, multiple pregnancy, hyperemesis, gross varicose veins, smoker ≥20, surgical procedure. --- G20210A ---
