Hospital Donostia"s Digestive Disorders Unit

The Digestive Disorders Services offered at Hospital Donostia, Guipuzcoa’s main treatment center for congenital bleeding disorders, provide patients with comprehensive care for any digestive tract problems. Blood derivative therapy that hemophiliacs and von Willebrand patients frequently use to control bleeding episodes repeatedly exposes them to different infections, including viral hepatitis.

Once Hematology has determined a patient is infected with the hepatitis B, C or D virus, they are sent to the Digestive Disorders Unit to undergo more exhaustive testing to treat and control the development of the infection. It is important Hematology always be informed of a patient’s status in the event they require some sort of blood derivative therapy.
