Title: Postpartum corticosteroids in HELLP syndrome – standard to prompt recovery
Author: M. Gabor , M. Drab, K. Holoman

Abstract: OBJECTIVES: To perform a complex review of HELLP syndrome and its treatment from up to date scientific literature. Study of the interresting treatement regime of the patient.
METHODS: Complex analysis of the syndrome, systematic search of medical scientific databases and Slovak Medical Library. Analysis of the life threatening state of the patient, retrospective analysis of the diagnostics, treatment, acute management, complications and clinical results.
RESULTS: According to up to date literature and our good clinical experiences we can encourage the use of high-dose corticosteroid therapy in HELLP syndrome.
CONCLUSION: The most recent studies definitely recommend the high dose corticosteroid treatment in recovery management by the HELLP syndrome. We have used the high-dose corticosteroid regime as a recovery management for the patient with postpartum HELLP with very good clinical and laboratory response followed by prompt recovery of the patient and without other complications. We want to support and empasize the indication of the Dexamethasone regiment by HELLP, becouse the clinical experiences with this treatment are not well-known and usually the corticosteroids are not given to the patients with HELLP, or the treatment is “daemonized”. Our clinical experience with this treatment was successful and the patient definitely profited of it. We support the opinion, that the benefit of described regiment highly exceedes the possible adverse effects of the therapy (Fig. 8, Ref. 61).
