Research DescriptionOver the last two decades, an increased appreciation of the impact of abnormal uterine bleeding on women with mild bleeding disorders has led to an increasing number of female patients seeking care. However, knowledge of how to best care for these patients has stalled. As the population ages, more women with inherited bleeding disorders will be confronted by age-related conditions, such as the increased risk for blood clots, which contribute to an increased risk for heart disease and stroke. The degree to which an inherited bleeding disorder decreases the risk for age-related cardiovascular diseases is currently unknown. The information generated from Dr. Moyer’s study will help clinicians make informed decisions that balance the inherent bleeding risk in women with bleeding disorders with the risk of heart attack and stroke.
