Congratulations (and thank you!) to our esteemed Learning Action Network (LAN) members Claudia Borzutzky, MD and Julie Jaffray, MD of Children's Hospital Los Angeles on publishing research regarding heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) in adolescents.
From the Abstract:
Heavy menstrual bleeding is a common cause of anemia and reduced quality of life in adolescents. There is a higher prevalence of bleeding disorders in girls with heavy menstrual bleeding than in the general population. Pediatricians should be comfortable with the initial evaluation of heavy menstrual bleeding and the indications for referral to subspecialty care.
