Cryoprecipitate

1. Cryoprecipitate is a source of fibrinogen, factor VIII, and von Willebrand factor (vWF).

2. It is ideal for supplying fibrinogen to the volume-sensitive patient.

3. When factor VIII concentrates are not available, cryoprecipitate may be used since each unit contains approximately 80 units of factor VIII.

4. Cryoprecipitate may also supply vWF to patients with dysfunctional (type II) or absent (type III) von Willebrand disease.

Extra Edge:

Cryoprecipitate is a source for

a. Fibrinogen b. Factor VIII c. VWF

Cryoprecipitate is not a source for factor IX
