Question: I am having a planned laparoscopic surgery next week. Should there be a filter on the light on the laparoscope? If so, would you be able to tell me what filter would need to be used? Can you also tell me what filters would be needed for the surgery lights in the operating room?
What is the Porphyrias Consortium? Why is it so important? What do they do?
What are enzymes and why they are important in the porphyrias?
Question: Can you recommend a list of specialties for acute porphyria patients, and a list of specialties for cutaneous porphyria patients?
