Let's Talk, Period! Is it von Willebrand Disease (vWD)?

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Von Willebrand disease, the most common inherited bleeding disorder worldwide and a cause of heavy menstrual bleeding in adolescent girls and women, is widely underrecognized. The underdetection of vWD is a missed opportunity to decrease the risk of obstetric/gynecologic symptoms such as spontaneous abortion, ovarian cysts, postpartum hemorrhage, and a diminished QoL. This educational activity intends to enhance HCP knowledge through discussion of proper diagnosis of this congenital bleeding disorder, and competence in applying best management practices in the multidisciplinary approach to treatment, through discussion of recent therapeutic developments, prophylaxis efficacy and current use, and addressing strategies for care, with the ultimate goal of improving patient quality of life.
