Early postpartum disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) was demonstrated by serial coagulation studies in 10 cases of acute renal failure (ARF) following obstetric complications (6 abruptio placentae, 3 retained placental fragments, 1 prolonged intrauterine fetal death). DIC abated within 48 hours irrespective of the therapeutic schedules employed. Renal damage was evidenced by a varying number of days of oligoanuric (6 cases) or polyuric (4 cases) ARF which always required dialytic treatment. Full renal recovery occurred in 9 cases. One patient died and no histological studies were performed. Renal damage seemed to correlate less with DIC than with the degree of anemia and shock.

Abstract

Early postpartum disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) was demonstrated by serial coagulation studies in 10 cases of acute renal failure (ARF) following obstetric complications (6 abruptio placentae, 3 retained placental fragments, 1 prolonged intrauterine fetal death). DIC abated within 48 hours irrespective of the therapeutic schedules employed. Renal damage was evidenced by a varying number of days of oligoanuric (6 cases) or polyuric (4 cases) ARF which always required dialytic treatment. Full renal recovery occurred in 9 cases. One patient died and no histological studies were performed. Renal damage seemed to correlate less with DIC than with the degree of anemia and shock.
