Abstract Number: PB1019
Meeting: ISTH 2020 Congress
Background: Hemophilia is a genetic or acquired disease that leads to spontaneous and recurrent bleedings, which affect the joints and muscles, thus determining chronic damage to the cartilage which will lead to joint disease and hemophilic arthropathy. Even though hemophilic patients were initially thought to have a low incidence of atherothrombotic complications, it is now clear that atherothrombotic events occur.
Aims: This clinical study aims to underline the best manner of treating patients with elective joint replacement and hemophilia.
Methods: We analyzed five patients with hemophilia type A, aged between 35 and 62 years. Two of them had a severe form of hemophilia with factor VIII less than 1%, while the other three had a moderate form with factor VIII ranging between 1 and 5%. The five patients underwent total knee repair interventions and received substitution treatment with clotting factors but also prophylactic anticoagulant treatment.
Results: The postsurgical evolution of these patients was favorable, with similar hemostatic profile as the non-hemophilic patients. Moroctocog alfa is an efficient substitutive treatment that manages to normalize the hemostatic profile of patients.
Conclusions: Therefore, it is recommended to provide prophylactic antithrombotic therapy after the orthopedic interventions in hemophilic patients.
