Özet

Recombinant activated factor VIIa (rFVIIa) is a potent hemostatic agent originally developed for the treatment of haemophilia patients with inhibitors against factor FVIII or FIX. In approved indications, the safety profile of rFVIIa is favourable without major concerns. The prevalence of thromboembolic (TE) complications is less than 4/100.000 with fatal events being extremely rare. Also, the majority of reported events occurred in elderly patients with predisposing factors for TE complications.
