Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia

We had an interesting application of HemCon dressings the other night. 8 day old with neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (transient low platelet clotting disorder) and prolonged bleeding from his circumcision site. The family was offered either silver nitrate (chemical cautery) or HemCon. They selected HemCon which controlled the bleeding after 3 minutes of pressure and 1 reapplication."
