WHAT IS THE OUTCOME OF TREATMENT FOR TTP?
Some patients with TTP still die. Most of our patients who died never had a chance for effective treatment; patients who have begun plasma exchange treatment have almost always survived. Because some patients who were critically ill have completely recovered, we initiate aggressive treatment with full life supporting measures in everyone. Patients who respond to treatment usually recover completely, but some problems, such as kidney failure, may be permanent.
