Intensive plasma exchange can transiently alter the hemostatic system. However, the effect of serial double filtration plasmapheresis (DFP) on the hemostatic system has not been adequately described. In this study, we sought to characterize the hemostatic effects of DFP in 32 myasthenia gravis patients who received one course of DFP treatment for five consecutive sessions within 10 days. Platelet count, prothrombin time (PT), partial thromboplastin time (PTT), and serum levels of albumin… CONTINUE READING
