von Willebrand disease (vWD) is the most common of the hereditary disorders of coagulation. We describe the pathophysiology, diagnosis and the new simplified classification of the disorder and discuss the management of patients about to undergo dental procedures and maxillofacial surgery. Close collaboration between oral and maxillofacial surgeons and haematologists in the management of patients with vWD is essential.
