Recurrent pregnancy loss is now considered a treatable clinical condition associated with antiphospholipid antibodies. The management of pregnant patients with antiphospholipid syndrome is mainly based on the use of antiaggregant/anticoagulant agents (with aspirin and heparin) to prevent thrombosis in the uteroplacental circulation. Interventions with these drug therapies and monitored pregnancy have increased fetal survival.
