Inherited conditions that predispose patients to deep vein thrombosis
Monday, November 26, 2012

 

Inherited conditions can lead to a genetic predisposition to develop venous thrombotic events (deep vein clots):

 

  • Factor V Leiden mutation (most common)
  • Activated protein C mutations
  • Antithrombin mutations
  • Protein C mutations
  • Protein S mutations
  • Elevated factor VIII levels
  • Prothrombin gene mutations
  • Dysfibrinogenemia

 

 

These conditions are frequently the cause of clot formation in young individuals (< 45 years) and may contribute to deep vein clots at any age. To learn more about these conditions, or if you have developed a deep vein clot at an early age - or have had recurrent deep vein clots (more than 1), consult your doctor to get evaluated for these inherited conditions using a simple blood test.
