This is an introduction for a supplement to the Canadian Journal of Anesthesia reporting proceedings of a satellite symposium presented at the 2002 Canadian Anesthesiologists’ Society Annual Meeting. It highlights the role of rFVIIa in managing bleeding in hemophilia patients with inhibitors, and the increasing number of case reports and studies in its role in managing uncontrolled bleeding in surgery and trauma in non-hemophiliac patients and patients with platelet disorders.
MISSION: Providing a multidisciplinary forum for dialogue between haematologists, transfusion medicine specialists, anaesthesiologists, intensive care and emergency physicians, surgeons, perfusionists, nurses, biomedical scientists and other healthcare professionals.
