Description

In this session, global experts will discuss the use of fibrinogen concentrate, prothrombin complex concentrates (PCCs) and FXIII Concentrate for the treatment of acquired deficiencies during uncontrolled bleeding. Speakers will discuss the risk and benefits, alternatives, and optimal laboratory assessments of each of the products. The speakers will highlight and critically assess the evidence provided from randomized clinical trials and observational studies to support the use of the products. The risk of thrombotic events will also be discussed and compared to standard blood components. Dr. Jeannie Callum, a Canadian transfusion medicine expert and experienced researcher involved in multiple fibrinogen concentrate randomized controlled trials, will discuss the use of fibrinogen concentrate.
