How is factor V deficiency treated?

Resources state that fresh plasma or fresh frozen plasma infusions will correct the deficiency temporarily and may be administered daily during a bleeding episode or after surgery.[1]  Individuals with factor V deficiency should discuss treatment options with their primary health care provider and a hematologist.
