Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Three teeth were extracted in three sessions in a 15-year-old girl with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia who suffered in the past severe bleeding and required platelet transfusions. The extraction sites were treated locally with autologous fibrin glue in adjunct of tranexamic acid swish and swallow rinses. No systemic platelet infusion was employed as a preventive measure. No postoperative bleeding occurred.
