Surgery in Bleeding Diathesis


Published on

Surgeons are doing surgeries because of normal blood clotting and wound healing. Suppose if your patient’s blood doesn’t clot properly and you come to know this only on the table, it would be a nightmare to any surgeon irrespective of their subspecialty. In this PPT, I am discussing about how to handle a patient with bleeding diathesis during and after surgery. Indeed it is a challenging and fascinating problem. I hope you will enjoy the video. You can watch all my teaching videos in the following links:;

  • Have You Seen Amanda Leto's new Uterine Fibroids System yet? It's called "Fibroids Miracle" I've read the whole thing (all 150 pages) and there's some great information in there about how to naturally and permanently eliminate your Uterine Fibroids without drugs, surgery or any kind of gimmicks. I highly recommend it - it's very honest and straightforward without all the hype and b.s. you see all over the net these days. Here's the website where you can get more information ♣♣♣
