Abstract

Background: Thrombocytopenia is a condition characterized by abnormally low platelet levels and the second leading cause of blood disorders in pregnancy after anemia. This study aims to systematically review and meta-analysis of studies assessing the prevalence of thrombocytopenia in pregnant women. Materials and Methods: A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted in 2016. The required data were collected using several keywords such as thrombocytopenia, pregnant, pregnancy, pregnant women, gestational and their Persian equivalents. The databases searched were as follows: PubMed, Scopus, Google Scholar, SID, Magiran, and Iran medex. Articles were included if they met the following criteria: original articles, reported the prevalence of thrombocytopenia in pregnant women, published in English or Persian. Articles were evaluated on the basis of the STROBE checklist. Computer software CMA: 2 was applied to estimate the overall prevalence of thrombocytopenia. Results: Eight of 522 articles were included in Meta analyses. The overall prevalence of thrombocytopenia in pregnant women based on the fixed effect model was 7.6 (95 CI 6- 9.7). The lowest percentage of prevalence of thrombocytopenia was associated to the study conducted in Iran (5.2), the highest percentage was related to the study conducted in Ghana (15.3). Gestational thrombocytopenia known as the most common cause of thrombocytopenia in pregnant women. Conclusion: Further research on thrombocytopenia in pregnancy is recommended in order to further investigate of this issue, required preventative initiatives and avoid unnecessary actions. © 2018 Wolters Kluwer Medknow Publications.
