Outcome Evaluation

The main goal of vWF treatment is to prevent bleeding with surgery or dental procedures. Clinicians should evaluate patients every 6 to 12 months for the following:

• Number and type of bleeding episodes to assess the need for prophylactic treatment.

• Ensure adequate levels of vWF and factor VIII prior to minor and major surgical procedures and for the treatment of bleeding.

• Vaccination against hepatitis A and B is recommended in all patients with vWF deficiency.
