Presented by the Perinatology Research Branch, this course features Jose Palacios Jaraquemade, M.D., Ph.D., professor of Anatomy and Surgery at the University of Buenos Aires, and Daniela Vasquez, M.D., an expert in intensive care.

Postpartum hemorrhage is the leading cause of maternal death worldwide. New advances in the prevention of postpartum hemorrhage have occurred with the use of tranexamic acid (the WOMAN Trial (World Maternal Antifibrinolytic Trial): tranexamic acid for the treatment of postpartum haemorrhage: an international randomised, double blind placebo-controlled trial, Lancet 2017) and the TRAAP Trial (Tranexamic Acid for the Prevention of Blood Loss after Vaginal Delivery), New England Journal of Medicine, 2018).

Dr. Palacios has developed surgical techniques to deal with life-threatening hemorrhage. He has lectured and operated throughout the world to teach his approach. He is the author of “Placental Adhesive Disorders.”

Dr. Vásquez will speak about the medical management of the patient with postpartum hemorrhage, including the diagnosis and management of coagulation disorders.

The course is free to faculty, residents and fellows.
