PMID: 36528893.


Moderate haemophilia has traditionally been associated with less complications than severe haemophilia. Changes in treatment recommendations have highlighted the burden of moderate haemophilia with a subset of patients with a severe bleeding phenotype. The ankle joint is disproportionally affected by ankle haemarthropathy however the impact has not been evaluated in moderate haemophilia, nor the effect on health related quality of life (HRQoL) or foot and ankle outcomes.
