Anaesthetic Management of a Haemophiliac patient with Thrombophilia
Haemophiliac patient are known to have increased mortality and morbidity in the past due to previous non existence of practice of blood banking. Mainly morbidity increased due to the complications arises such as recurrent bleeding episodes, painful haemarthroses and permanent disability secondary to ankylosed joints. This case enlightens the role and impact of undetected changes in Hemophilia A patient with Buerger's disease, highlighting the importance of vigilance on the part of the anesthesiologist, who must ensure the adequacy of hemostatic monitoring in these patients. The clinical presentation of Haemophilia A disease with Buerger's disease is a rare entity and can be challangeable for practicing anaesthesiology.
