Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP)

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura can be of different manifestations.

The hall mark is clotting in microcirculation, and low platelet.

Though you have been cleared, In my practice I would advise patients like you not to undergo any elective surgical procedure
