Answer

ASH recommendations are as follows:

  • Splenectomy for patients who have failed corticosteroid therapy
  • Thrombopoietin receptor agonists for patients at risk of bleeding who relapse after splenectomy or who have a contraindication to splenectomy and who have failed at least one other therapy
