von Willebrand disease mnemonic

Greetings everyone!

As you all probably already know, I've been studying loads of hematology this week. Here's another compilation of facts + mnemonic on  von Willebrand disease!



E: Endothelium synthesises vWF
B: Bleeding time prolonged
R: Ristocetin co factor assay is used to measure vWF activity
A: Autosomal
N: -
D: Dominant
D: Desmopressin / DDAVP used for treatment

Mnemonic: "EBRAND"

That's all!
