How To Remember Acquired Von Willebrand Syndrome Signs & Symptoms?
Rarely, a person may be diagnosed with Acquired von Willebrand Syndrome (AVWS), a problem of blood clotting brought on by an underlying medical illness or the use of specific drugs.
The protein von Willebrand factor (VWF) aids in blood clotting, hence its absence is a hallmark of this condition. Symptoms of AVWS can include profuse bleeding, easy bruising, and nosebleeds.
Desmopressin, a drug that boosts VWF levels in the blood, or blood transfusions are commonly used for treatment. The problem can be alleviated in certain circumstances when the underlying condition causing it is cured.
Here are the signs and symptoms of Acquired Von Willebrand Syndrome Signs & Symptoms:
- Prolonged bleeding after dental work or surgery
- Unusually heavy menstrual periods
- Nosebleeds without apparent cause
- Joint pain or swelling caused by bleeding into the joints
- Blood in urine or stool
- Heavy or prolonged bleeding from cuts or injuries
- Easy bruising
- Fatigue or weakness caused by blood loss
