Pentasa was not associated with excessive bleeding in one of our gracious patients who underwent rhinoplasty surgery.

October 7, 2016

We performed a rewarding rhinoplasty surgery on a patient taking Pentasa for Crohn’s disease, and there was no excessive bleeding. The patient stopped Pentasa four days preoperative after hematology consultation, but anti-inflammatory medications that inhibitb platelet function typically thin the blood for well over seven days. As of today, there are no guidelines regarding Pentasa and the perioperative patient, and I wanted to share this to help others. Thank you.
