Secondary hemostatic disorders are known to cause profund hemorrhages. On the other hand, primary hemostatic disorders are said to cause mainly cutaneous and mucosal bleeding, without profund reach.
Yet primary hemostasis is usually presented as necessary for secondary hemostasis to take place.
One would therefore expect primary hemostatic disorders to cause, not only superficial bleeding, but also profund hemorrhages.

Is there an explanation for the absence of profund hemorrhages in the typical clinical manifestations of primary hemostatic disorders ?
Many thanks in advance.
