Bleeding or Clotting that is the question?
An 18 year old male has right knee arthroscopy with a diagnosis of hemarthrosis. His own history is insignificant for bleeding, no epistaxis, gum bleeding, non bleeding at circumcision. The family history -- father had a prolonged APTT pre-operatively in his 40's, treated with DDAVP and diagnosed with von Willebrand's disease, grandfather is in his 80's with no history of bleeding, half-sister has a strong history of menorrhagia but is negative for von Willebrand disease.
