Aim The aim of this study was to provide basic documents applicable to studying the usefulness of administering fibrinogen concentrate to patients with massive post-partum hemorrhage. We investigated the usage of fibrinogen concentrate at training institutions for specialist physicians of the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Material and Methods The subjects were women who required fibrinogen concentrate for hemostasis of post-partum hemorrhage during the period between April 2008 and March 2013. The underlying diseases, obstetric disseminated intravascular coagulation scores, blood loss, amount of blood transfusion, dose of fibrinogen concentrate administered, and plasma fibrinogen levels before and after the administration of fibrinogen concentrate were retrospectively investigated. Results Ninety-nine (98.0%) patients survived and two died after taking fibrinogen concentrate. Of the surviving 99 cases, the average amount of blood loss at the time of initial fibrinogen administration and total blood loss was 3559 ± 2103 mL and 4562 ± 3198 mL, respectively. The dose per administration was 3 g, and the plasma fibrinogen level before the initial administration of fibrinogen concentrate was 70.5 mg/dL, thereafter increasing to 187.0 mg/dL. The increase in the fibrinogen level was 32.9 mg/dL/g of fibrinogen concentrate. It was less than 150 mg/dL after the first administration of fibrinogen concentrate only in patients with amniotic fluid embolism and patients with atonic bleeding showed the smallest increase in fibrinogen per gram of fibrinogen concentrate. No adverse events, including thromboembolism, were reported. Conclusion The results indicated the increase in blood fibrinogen levels to, on occasion, be insufficient even with fibrinogen concentrate use; however, this survey may support the safety and usefulness of fibrinogen concentrate for PPH.

Obstetrical disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is usually a very acute, serious complication of pregnancy. The obstetrical DIC score helps with making a prompt diagnosis and starting treatment early. This DIC score, in which higher scores are given for clinical parameters rather than for laboratory parameters, has three components: (i) the underlying diseases; (ii) the clinical symptoms; and (iii) the laboratory findings (coagulation tests). It is justifiably appropriate to initiate th...

Resume L’hemorragie du post-partum est la premiere cause de mort maternelle en France et dans le monde. La prise en charge protocolee et chronometree de l’hemorragie obstetricale peut contribuer a reduire la morbi-mortalite liee a cette pathologie. La reanimation s’appuiera sur une organisation anticipee des soins garante de l’acces aux gestes d’hemostase, aux moyens de surveillance et aux produits sanguins. La transfusion est au cœur de ce dispositif.
The diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) should encompass both clinical and laboratory information. The International Society for Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) DIC scoring system provides objective measurement of DIC. Where DIC is present the scoring system correlates with key clinical observations and outcomes. It is important to repeat the tests to monitor the dynamically changing scenario based on laboratory results and clinical observations. The cornerstone of the tr...

Management of massive, life-threatening primary postpartum hemorrhage in the labor and delivery service is a challenge for the clinical team and hospital transfusion service. Because severe postpartum obstetrical hemorrhage is uncommon, its occurrence can result in emergent but variable and nonstandard requests for blood products. The implementation of a standardized massive transfusion protocol for the labor and delivery department at our institution after a maternal death caused by amniotic fl...
Summary. Background: Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a major source of maternal morbidity. Objectives: This study's objective was to determine whether changes in hemostasis markers during the course of PPH are predictive of its severity. Patients and methods: We enrolled 128 women with PPH requiring uterotonic prostaglandin E2 (sulprostone) infusion. Two groups were defined (severe and non-severe PPH) according to the outcome during the first 24 hours. According to our criteria, 50 of the 128 wom...
Pregnancy, from implantation to parturition, presents unique and profound challenges to a women's hemostatic system. During pregnancy, potentially catastrophic bleeding can occur during implantation and endovascular trophoblast invasion of the maternal spiral arteries. The risk of hemorrhage reaches

Background and objectives: Massive postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the most common cause of maternal death worldwide. A massive transfusion protocol (MTP) may be used to provide significant benefits in the management of PPH; however, only a limited number of hospitals use MTP protocol to manage massive obstetric hemorrhages, especially in Japan. This study aimed to assess the clinical outcomes in patients in whom MTP was activated in our hospital. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewe...

Japanese obstetrical hemorrhage recommendations state that not only pregnant women with an obstetrical disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) score ≥ 8 points but also those with fibrinogen levels ≤ 1.5 g/L have a high risk of maternal death and warrant blood transfusion. Our aim was to demonstrate the potential of fibrinogen levels ≤ 1.5 g/L as predictors of a Japanese obstetrical DIC score of ≥ 8. We included 595 participants with blood loss ≥ 1000 mL during vaginal delivery or ≥ 2000 mL...

Arterial ligation and stepwise uterine devascularization were formerly used as hemostatic techniques to control massive hemorrhage during cesarean section without hysterectomy and to preserve the uterus. However, depending on the sites of arterial ligation, the hemostatic effect was often inadequate because of collateral circulation. Subsequently, insufficient blood flow and ischemia in the preserved uterus caused ovarian dysfunction and endometrial growth impairment, (e.g., hypomenorrhea, oligo...

Placental abruption is a condition that should be carefully considered in perinatal management because it is associated with serious events in both the mother and neonate, such as intrauterine fetal death, cerebral palsy, obstetric critical bleeding, and uncontrollable bleeding. The concomitant presence of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) more easily causes critical bleeding that may necessitate hysterectomy or multi-organ failure resulting in maternal death. Therefore, early managem...

AbstractObjective: The diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in obstetrics is complicated owing to physiological changes, particularly during late pregnancy and the postpartum period. Therefore, a pregnancy-modified DIC score that includes only three components of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) DIC score has been constructed. Our aim was to determine how many blood-transfused postpartum women actually had the diagnosis of overt DIC according to ...

AIM: In cases of critical obstetric hemorrhage leading to extreme hypofibrinogenemia, fibrinogen is the marker that indicates the critical severity, and early fibrinogen supplementation centering on hemostatic resuscitation is a vital treatment to stabilize a catastrophic condition. In this review, we investigated the effect of fibrinogen level on hemostasis and what we can do to treat hypofibrinogenemia efficiently and improve patients' outcome. METHODS: We reviewed numerous articles related to...
