Answer

Epistaxis and moderately severe hematuria may be adequately treated by achieving and maintaining FVIII levels in the range of 30-50%. Use a higher dose initially, followed by a gradual lowering of the dose after the bleeding is under control, and then continue FVIII replacement until clinical and objective evidence indicates resolution of the bleeding.
