VONVENDI is also the first and only recombinant treatment for VWD that's approved for three uses including:
Routine prophylaxis in appropriate adult patients with severe type 3 VWD1
VONVENDI is used in adults (age 18 years and older) diagnosed with von Willebrand disease to:
treat and control bleeding episodes
prevent excessive bleeding during and after surgery
reduce the number of bleeding episodes when used regularly (prophylaxis) in adults with severe Type 3 von Willebrand disease receiving on-demand therapy
Who should not use VONVENDI?
You should not use VONVENDI if you:
