BOADA, Matilde. Prothrombotic states and pregnancy loss. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2021, vol.6, n.2, pp.27-30.  Epub July 01, 2021. ISSN 2393-6797.

Pregnancy losses are a common obstetric complication. It is known that 15% of pregnant women have at least one sporadic loss. 5% experience 2 losses, and up to 1% 3 or more. Advanced maternal age, multiparity, and a history of prior pregnancy loss increase the risk. The link between hereditary and acquired prothrombotic states with pregnancy losses is related to the fact that adequate placental circulation is necessary for the pregnancy to be maintained. Over the years, the relationship between the different hereditary and acquired prothrombotic states with these vascular complications that lead to pregnancy losses and obstetric complications has been studied. A review is carried out on the hereditary and acquired thrombophilias with this entity.
