Participants listening to the presentation of Dr Nilofar Sadiq at Malalai Maternity Hospital

Kabul: FMIC obstetrician, Dr Nilofar Sadiq conducted a CME session at Malalai Maternity Hospital in Kabul. The hospital hosted the FMIC doctor to share her experience in the treatment of acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP), a disease, which may occur among women during pregnancy.  

Dr Nilofar explained the risk factors, symptoms and diagnosis of the disease and was alarmed about the increasing number of patients with AFLP and the difficulty of the early diagnosis of AFLP.  She explained that the suspected patients with nausea and vomiting, headache, belly pain and jaundice should be under close monitoring and a liver biopsy can help the doctors to diagnose. 

At the session, Dr Nilofar presented different cases of the disease and the treatment through cautious delivery of the babies. She explained that during a cesarean delivery proper hemostasis should be practised. 

The participants of the session also shared their experience in encountering AFLP cases at Malalai Maternity Hospital and the risk of mortality among patients with AFLP. 

At the end of the session, the participants asked different questions about the topic and they requested the FMIC team to conduct more sessions on different topics related to obstetrics and gynaecology. ​

FMIC initiated Continuing Medical Education (CME) to promote the culture of evidence-based medicine and provide opportunities for medical professionals to advance their knowledge and skills. The CMEs will be arranged at different hospitals in Kabul and FMIC consultants will provide presentations and lectures on different medical topics.
