Training and home infusions administered by parents followed by patient self-infusion are critical components of comprehensive care; especially for those with severe disease, intravenous infusion of factor VIII concentrate is most effective when infused within one hour of the onset of bleeding. For those with mild disease, including most symptomatic carriers, immediate treatment of bleeding or prophylaxis with intravenous or nasal desmopressin (DDAVP [1-deamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin.

Tranexamic acid exerts its effect more rapidly than estrogens and erythropoietin, is safer than cryoprecipitates, and at least as effective as desmopressin (1-deamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin [DDAVP]) for improvement of bleeding time. 10, 11 The end point assessed during most of the studies reviewed by Hedges et al. , as well as during our own studies, is the effect of treatment on bleeding time. From a clinical stand-point, however, this end point has very limited value as a predictor of bleeding in, for example, patients undergoing renal biopsy.
