A 36 year-old patient with severe haemophilia A and high-titre inhibitor underwent cataract surgery under topical anaesthesia. Recombinant factor VIIa was used only three times, once before and twice following surgery. Tranexamic acid was given concomitantly. One month after the first successful procedure on the right eye, a second operation was performed on the left eye in the same manner. Both procedures were uneventful. Neither bleeding complications nor any other side effects occurred.
