Thrombophilias and stillbirth

Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology
Erika F Werner, Charles J Lockwood


It is often postulated that both inherited and acquired thrombophilias increase the risk of stillbirth. In an attempt to reduce this theoretical risk, pregnant patients with prior fetal losses and thrombophilias are anticoagulated. However, there is no definitive proof that thrombophilias are causally linked to stillbirth. Prospective studies have failed to establish a definitive link between inherited thrombophilias and stillbirth. The extant literature suggests that only high concentrations of antiphospholipid antibodies are associated with stillbirth. Moreover, when pregnant women with prior fetal losses even in these cases are placed on anticoagulation, it is unclear that their recurrence risk of stillbirth decreases.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
