Does History Of Dvt Cause C Section Complications
Swelling: Dvt can occur in the deep veins anywhere. But we usually think of the legs after pregnancy, weight gain, dependent posture and surgery swelling, tenderness, and venous congestion and some discoloration= blueness from the congestion can occur. Ultrasound is a way to make the diagnosis and lead to treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

With no memory of trauma after vaginal child birth, what could cause pelvic adhesions? 1 live birth high risk due to bleeding. No prev. Surg.
Does having a previous endometritis effect current pregnancy or cause any type of complications during labor and delivery?
2 possibilities: The theoretical reason is that the operative delivery disrupts the tissues and allows amniotic fluid to more easily pass into the woman's blood vessels. But it's not entirely clear if this is a true risk or just an association. Women with suspected amniotic fluid embolism are rushed to c-section. So it's possible it's the other way around, amniotic fluid embolism increases risk of c-section. ...Read more
What should I do to reduce risk of DVT or pe during very long flights? I have multiple risk factors including heart disease, diabetes, and venous insu
Not squeezed: Normal vaginal delivery squeezes some of the fluid in the lung spaces out during passage through the birth canal. C-sections alows that fluid to remain and thereby can cause a poor exchange of oxygen. Ttn uaually resolves on its own with supportive care. Ttn can also happen with a normal delivery but less often. ...Read more
What is mthfr? Can the presence of mthfr increase complications from an inadvertent epidural puncture?
Genetic mutation: Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (mthfr) is the rate-limiting enzyme in the methyl cycle, and it is encoded by the mthfr gene. Genetic variation in this gene influences susceptibility to occlusive vascular disease, colon cancer, leukemia and neural tube defects. I am not aware of any relationship between mthfr levels and problems with epidural punctures. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?
At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How much does liver damage, excessive pain medication, lupus, and previous miscarriages increase chances of a future occurrence?
Definite risk: Any miscarriage with sle increases the chance of another miscarriage. So do other pregnancy related problems. You should see a rheumatologist and a high risk obstetrician with sle experience and discuss the timing and risks of oregnancy for your individual problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Delivery by cesarean section is one of the predisposing factors of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, why? And how?
??RDS??: I would agree more cs babies have respiratory pbs than regular delivery but the issue is ttn ( transient tachypnea of the newborn) not rds.A trip down the birth canal helps squeeze some of the lung fluid out before birth, which does not happen for cs. About 10% of cs will have to work hard to clear that fluid & may require o2 & special care in the process.It usually clears in < 48hr. ...Read more
I'm O+, my husband is AB+. What's the likelihood of our baby having neonatal anemia? High risk pregnancy w/ maternal anemia and planned c-section cutting through anterior placenta previa.
Possible: There is some possibility of an A/O or B/O reaction with jaundice and hemolytic disease but that part of this is usually minor and easy to manage. An OB with quick hands can limit the other issue. I would try to relax and figure out what your life will be like with 3 kids running around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

For 58+ F, can presence of LBBB in ECG be indicative of any previous heart attack or stroke ? How risky is it for future heart health ?
Absolutely, LBBB is: a result of endocardial muscle damage/infarction of the Perkinje fibers & surrounding muscle. Endocardial muscle (because heart contraction blocks capillary flow during each beat) is always most susceptible to ischemic damage (heart attack) yet least reflected on surface EKG other than by elongation of the QRS duration. Thus QRS duration beyond 80 msec is the most sensitive sign of heart attack. ...Read more
