Desmopressin in Cardiac Surgery

2014-08-27 03:44:08 | BioPortfolio


Patients undergoing cardiac surgery could develop excessive perioperative bleeding requiring transfusions of blood products.

Desmopressin (DDAVP), already used for patients with von Willebrand syndrome, could reduce bleeding and transfusion requirements in these patients when administered ev (0.3 mg/kg) in 20-30 minutes postoperatively.
