Answer

Prognosis depends on the types of complications that develop, on the type of replacement product the patient has received, and on the viral infections that the patient has accumulated over the years. Newly diagnosed patients should, whenever possible, receive purer products to ensure maximum safety.

The presence of inhibitors in patients poses a serious therapeutic challenge, and, currently, surgery should be considered only as a lifesaving measure.
