Thrombophilias and Insurance Companies: The problem with ACOG’s recent Practice Bulletin

April 26, 2010 7 comments

In this month’s Green Journal, ACOG published Practice Bulletin #111 “Inherited Thrombophilias in Pregnancy”.  This practice bulletin was an attempt to coalesce the available evidence on thrombophilias in pregnancy and to make some evidence based recommendations for how obstetricians should deal with the issue.

This is all well and good, but what happened next was not.  A few weeks after publication ACOG retracted the Practice Bulletin.  Though we don’t know for sure, this was likely due to an outcry the many MFMs who don’t agree with the published recommendations.  As of now, it is no longer available online, and exists only in the pages of the printed journal.  Per ACOG, a new version will be out this summer.

Green Journal Sept 2009 – LEEP increases risk of preterm birth. Scandinavian LEEP throw down!

September 6, 2009 3 comments

scandinavia-map.gifThis month’s Green brings us not one but two articles on the effect of LEEP on subsequent risk of preterm birth.   The first article, published by Fins and Swedes Jakobsson and Gissler et al, looks at a wide population of patients, while the Danes Noehr and Jensen et al fire back with a look at the effect of LEEP on preterm birth rates in twins.
