Abstract

Hemophilia is a congenital coagulopathy characterized by a differently marked deficiency of the coagulation factor VIII or IX. In the late sixties the development of highly purified factor VIII/IX concentrates led to a major change in the treatment of hemophilic patients. Thus, in 1971, in addition to the existing in-hospital and outpatient treatment, the Hemophilia Center Bonn introduced the controlled self-treatment. This new treatment concept enables the hemophiliac to lead a normal social life. He is no longer excluded from attending Kindergarten or school or leading a professional life.
