Answer

Surgery

Surgical intervention may be necessary for complications of bleeding, such as the following:

  • Neurosurgery if subdural hematoma forms

  • Surgical evacuation of hematomas

  • Surgical intervention to halt blood loss after any minor trauma

  • Splenectomy as an option in cases of coexisting severe thrombocytopenia and frequent bleeding when stem cell reconstitution is not considered
