A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

My son, like myself, has von Willebrand's type 2b. He is having his wisdom teeth removed and is going to take Amicar and Vonvendi. Weird thing is advate is also on the list. Anyone else with vW been given this? It is usually given to hemophiliacs

I had found out that Advate is only given when the Factor VIII level is low. Therefore one dose is administered.
