They are particularly useful adjunctive therapies in the management of mucosal bleeding, in that they modulate the effects of the tPA that is released when DDAVP is administered. These antifibrinolytic agents are generally well tolerated, although nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, malaise, fever, rash, and transient hypotension or cardiac arrhythmias may occur. e-Aminocaproic acid may also rarely cause rhabdomyolysis, particularly with prolonged use, in which cases appropriate laboratory monitoring is in order.

DDAVP is a useful therapy for the qualitative platelet defects associated with uremia or with ingestion of aspirin, for mild or moderately severe hemophilia A, and for V WD (especially type 1). 3mg/kg of body weight intravenously over 15 to 30 minutes in 50 mL normal saline, to a maximum total dose of 20–25 mg. Although its exact mechanism of action remains unknown, DDAVP ultimately produces transient increases in levels of VWF antigen, factor VIII activity, ristocetin cofactor activity, tissue plasminogen activator, and PAI-1.

This may reflect the fact that younger platelets are larger, contain a higher concentration of procoagulant proteins within their cytoplasmic granules, and are “more active” in their capacity to adhere to areas of damaged endothelium and to aggregate with other platelets to form a localized platelet plug. BT is most frequently performed with the Ivy or Simplate II (BioControl, Bellevue, Wash, USA) method. 5 mm) on the ventral surface of the forearm, versus two incisions for the Simplate II technique with a standardized springloaded razor blade device (blade depth, 1 mm).
