Care of the pregnancy complicated by HELLP syndrome.
Gastroenterol Clin North Am. 1992 Dec; 21(4):937-50.GC

Abstract

Pregnancies complicated by HELLP syndrome require a well-formulated management plan. The development of this syndrome after 34 weeks' gestation or with documentation of fetal lung maturity is an indication for delivery. Vaginal delivery can be accomplished in most cases; however, if cesarean section is required, the use of general anesthesia, subfascial drains, and preoperative platelet transfusion for platelet counts less than 50,000/mm3 can reduce the incidence of complications. It is advisable that patients with complications of HELLP syndrome such as pulmonary edema, acute renal failure, liver rupture, or extreme prematurity be referred to a tertiary care center where maternal and neonatal intensive care facilities are available.
