Uterine Hemostasis and Menstrual Management in the Adolescent: A Multidisciplinary Approach is organized by American Society of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology (ASPHO) and will be held on Apr 30, 2020.
Heavy menstrual bleeding at menarche and in the early gynecologic years is often attributed to anovulation. While anovulation can cause heavy bleeding, other etiologies such as bleeding disorders (BD), should be considered. This webinar, relevant to pediatric hematology/oncology clinicians, will discuss the diagnosis and management of bleeding disorders.
• Gather basic information about menstrual cycles that is critical in assessing an adolescent's menstrual bleeding and recognize red flags that suggest an underlying bleeding disorder
• Order and interpret appropriate labs to assess the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis and underlying bleeding disorders in adolescents with heavy menstrual bleeding
• Discuss management considerations for adolescents with heavy menstrual bleeding and bleeding disorders
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
