The Thrombosis Panel includes testing for Prothrombin (Factor II) G20210A mutation analysis and Factor V Leiden mutation analysis with reflex to Factor V HR2 if the Factor V Leiden testing is positive. Individuals with multiple thrombophilic mutations develop venous thromboembolism at a younger age and are at higher risk for recurrent thrombosis than those with a single defect.
The panel may be ordered as is or the tests may be ordered individually.
Indications for Testing
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism
- Superficial venous thrombosis, phlebitis or thrombophlebitis
- History of thromboembolism
- Premature cardiovascular disease
- Peripheral vascular artery disease
- Acute myocardial infarction
- Personal history of 2 or more blood-clotting incidents
- Family history of blood clots, early stroke or premature vascular artery disease
- Unexplained early-onset severe preeclampsia, placental abruption, or significant intrauterine growth retardation
- Recurrent unexplained first-trimester losses
