Poster Abstract
Open heart surgery is a major challenge in patients suffering from inherited bleeding disorders such as von Willebrand Disease.
Here we describe the intraoperative hemostatic management of a 73-year-old Caucasian male with a history of vWD who was found to have significant multi-vessel coronary artery disease and underwent cardiothoracic surgery for open revascularization.
Arriving at a specific diagnosis of vWD was crucial in formulating a perioperative strategy. The approach in this setting was to optimize vWF and FVIII levels in the preoperative, intraoperative, as well as postoperative periods. The administration of Humate P was also central to this plan.
Throughout the case, no significant bleeding of any type was observed and the postoperative course was unremarkable. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 8.
