People living with haemophilia are prone to bleeding. When bleeding occurs in the joint, blood accumulates within the joint and is referred to as hemarthrosis. If hemarthrosis occurs frequently, causing inflammation of the tissue covering the joint cavity, a chronic situation can be created which over time leads to the onset of arthropathy. “Hemophilic arthropathy is the main complication of hemophilia. Regular prophylaxis aims to prevent bleeding and the consequent joint damage and is now increasingly customized on the basis of the patient’s needs and lifestyle, in order to guarantee the most optimal protection and adherence possible “, he explains. Dr. Ilaria Nichele, hematologist at the Center for Hemorrhagic and Thrombotic Diseases of Vicenza speaking at the online meeting of the Vicenza stage of ‘Articoliamo’, a campaign supported by Sobi with the patronage of FedEmo and dedicated to the joint well-being of haemophilic patients.
