I never assumed LIF was diagnosis, just thought maybe this procedure was used and somehow affected the outcome. Hopefully that is obvious from my answer. And - just to make things clear - I appreciate your explanation, Siegfried, but not your first answer. There is absolutely no need to get ironical and personal if you think a wrong answer has been given. If it is wrong, it is wrong and good that someone knows better and gives the reason why. Hope that clarifies my position - as well as yours.
- "Local intraarterial fibrinolysis" is a procedure not a diagnosis,
- "...in local intraarterial fibrinolysis" makes no sense at all
- peri- and post-partal thrombocytopenia is quite normal in humans
- there is no indication that anything was wrong with either the pregnancy or the delivery
If I remember correctly there was recently a thread with a suggestion that people participating in KudoZ should be nice to each other. I don't think Siegfried's expression 'der absolute Schwachsinn' could qualify as a nice way to discuss things. And - believe or not - having been pregnant myself I do know how a pregnancy usually ends or at least should end. As well as the fact that sometimes it involves a whole set of problems - including the TP.
Brilliante Idee und hochwahrscheinlich. Kontext bezüglich des Wohnortes oder des behandelnden Arztes etc. könnten weitere Hinweise geben. Hoffentlich helfen auch "disagrees" dass die Applikation nicht weiter in den absoluten Schwachsinn abstürzt.
Explanation: Googling LIF and then entering LIF into below gives several matches, but this seems to meet the context given the mention of Thrombocytopenia, which is an LIF as it's related to platelet deficiency in the blood

Local Intra-arterial Fibrinolysis (LIF)
Explanation: I think the keyword here is 'Thrombozytopenie' - as far as I understood from Roche Lexikon it can cause spontaneous bleedings. Therefore LIF could be 'lokale intraarterielle Fibrinolysis' which is translated as 'Local Intra-arterial Fibrinolysis'. An example of it's use is described in this article:
Thrombocytopenia is indeed quite important factor here. Please have a look at this:
Maternal hemorrhage at time of birth is a risk in women with ITP, particularly if the platelet count decreases to less than 20,000/µL. (...)
Severe neonatal thrombocytopenia places the infant at risk for intracranial or visceral hemorrhage. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/208697-overview
ITP (Immune thrombocytopenia)
The major focus of concern is on the risk for neonatal thrombocytopenia. In contrast to fetal alloimmune
thrombocytopenia, which may be severe and cause intrauterine fetal hemorrhage, intrauterine fetal hemorrhage has not
been reported in ITP. The main concern is for trauma at birth and its risk of provoking cerebral hemorrhage in the
newborn infant. http://moon.ouhsc.edu/jgeorge/Tpreg.html
