[Use of recombinant activated factor VII (NovoSeven) in the treatment of a patient with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura complicated with subarachnoid and parenchimatous hemorrhage].

[Article in Ukrainian]

Abstract

Efficiency of recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) (NovoSeven) in treatment of patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) complicated with subarachnoid and parenchimatous hemorrhage was shown in the article. The action of NovoSeven in patients with an affected megakaryocytic system depends on the binding of rFVIIa with activated thrombocites and on their surface rFVIIa provides the activation of X factor and thrombin formation. NovoSeven proved to be called a universal hemostatic medication for the idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura treatment. Taking into account that transfusion of thrombocites concentrate is not recommended for patients with thrombocytopenia of immune origin and after immunoglobulin infusion we need time to see thrombocites number grow so in urgent NovoSeven is a medication of choice to stop bleeding in patients with ITP.
