Sample text

The thrombin–thrombomodulin complex activates plasma protein C, and activated protein C (APC) binds free plasma protein S. The stabilized APC–protein S complex hydrolyzes factors Va and VIIIa to slow thrombin generation and fibrin formation. Protein S circulates either free or covalently bound to the complement binding protein C4bBP. Bound protein S cannot participate in the protein C anticoagulant pathway; only free plasma protein S is available to serve as the APC cofactor. 2 Laboratory Assessment of Physiologic and Pathologic Hemostasis Functional assays detect both quantitative and qualitative protein C deficiencies.

The most notable complication is spontaneous ICH that occurs secondary to hypoprothrombinemia. Other side-effects include ecchymosis, purpura, and hematuria. Patients can also experience skin necrosis secondary to the depletion of protein C and S mentioned earlier; this leads to thrombosis of vessels supplying the skin in the extremities. 36 % [11]. 7 % of these events [10]. When patients present with ICH while on VKAs, the mortality rate is estimated to reach 46–55 % [13, 14] with significant long-term disability in those that do survive [15, 16].

The presence of large platelets on the blood film associated with elevated 20 mean platelet volume often indicates rapid platelet turnover, such as in immune thrombocytopenic purpura. Bleeding Time Test for Platelet Function The bleeding time test is the original test of platelet function. Using a blood pressure cuff inflated to 40 mmHg, a controlled puncture wound is made with a calibrated spring-loaded lancet triggered on the volar surface of the forearm, and the resulting wound is blotted every 30 s until bleeding stops.
