Transurethral resection in a patient with a dysfibrinogen: fibrinogen cleveland I.

Abstract

A case of a congenitally abnormal fibrinogen that resulted in surgical wound dehiscence is reported. The patient underwent successful transurethral resection for benign prostatic hypertrophy while being treated with epsilon aminocaproic acid to prevent fibrinolysis of the abnormal fibrin clot.
