Peri-operative and post-operative management of hemophiliac patients with inhibitors

Elena Santagostino, Maria Elisa Mancuso

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In the past, elective orthopedic surgery in hemophilic patients with inhibitors was usually not contemplated because of the high risk of bleeding complications. Thanks to the progress made in the development of bypassing therapies, elective surgery has become feasible; however, only centers that are already experienced can tackle this challenge. A strict collaboration amongst surgeons, hematologists, and physiotherapists is essential for a successful long-term outcome.
