[Perioperative management of a patient with an acquired von Willebrand syndrome].Ann Fr Anesth Reanim. 2008 Jan; 27(1):86-9.AF
We report the case of a man suffering from a monoclonal gammapathy with an acquired von Willebrand disease in a perioperative context. This pathology is rare, but is important to diagnose because of the possible haemorrhagic complications encountered. We describe the main therapeutic options available today to prevent bleeding during major surgery.
