Abstract

Recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa, NovoSeven, Novo Nordisk A/S, Denmark) is a treatment used to prevent and arrest intra- and postoperative bleeding in patients with haemophilia A or B complicated by circulating anticoagulants (inhibitors of FVIII and FIX) and in patients without haemophilia who spontaneously develop inhibitors of FVIII, i.e. in acquired haemophilia. Patients who qualify for liver transplantation due to liver dysfunction may have varying degrees of coagulation impairment and thus carry an elevated risk of massive bleeding and have worse prognosis. The authors administered recombinant activated factor VII to two patients with coagulation abnormalities in the course of Wilson's disease during liver transplantation.
