Topic Areas:

  • Gynecologic Solutions: Achievement through normal ovulatory cycle, normal uterine integrity
  • Obstetric SolutionsAchievement through thrombosis of uterine veins, uterine ischemia, and uterine contraction
  • Hematologic Solutions: Achievement through normal platelet function, when there is normal coagulation
  • Discussion of the three solution areas: What are the existing options and what are the opportunities?
