Desmopressin in the Treatment of Uremic Bleeding: A Review
by Finnegan McCleary on 5.05.2023 Comments (0)

I recently came across a review discussing the use of desmopressin in treating uremic bleeding. It appears that desmopressin can effectively reduce bleeding in patients with chronic kidney disease by increasing the release of von Willebrand factor and improving platelet function. This treatment has shown promising results in various clinical settings, including surgery and dental procedures. However, it's important to note that desmopressin should be used with caution in certain situations, as it may cause fluid retention and hyponatremia. Overall, desmopressin seems to be a valuable tool in managing bleeding complications in patients with kidney issues, but close monitoring is essential for optimal patient outcomes.
