What Does High Ptt Mean
The time required for clot formation in blood plasma after activation and addition of platelet particles such as phospholipids. The test called PTT or aptt is used to assess the coagulation pathways or clotting pathways in your blood. A prolonged aptt can indicate a deficiency of a component of the clotting pathways, such as factors xii, xi, ix, viii, x, v, ...Read more

Doc, my wife pregnant 6w, 3 times miscarriages, this 4th, after blood test her actual partial thromboplastin time High: 45.3....means?
OB-Gyn Consult: Partial thromboplastin time (PTT) is a blood test that measures the time it takes your blood to clot. A longer-than-normal PTT or APTT can mean a lack of or low level of one of the blood clotting factors or another substance needed to clot blood. A longer-than-normal PTT may be caused by conditions such as antiphospholipid antibody syndrome or lupus anticoagulant syndrome (increase miscarriage). ...Read more

Is it possible to have polycythemia vera with normal pt, ptt, & INR plus normal bleeding time? High rbc, hgb, & hct.
Yes: Pt, ptt, inr and bleeding time have no role in the diagnosis of p. Vera. If you're eighteen years old, i'd look hard for a different cause if you are actually significantly polycythemic. There are plenty of really fit young men whose hemoglobin is a bit higher than the reference range -- athleticism to odd hemoglobin genes to something in your "gym health drink" you don't know about. Good luck. ...Read more

Please tell me what does an elavated ptt mean and why do you need an hematology/oncologist for that?
Many causes: Ptt is a screening test that tests for the status of multiple coagulation factors in blood. There are a variety of reasons for prolonged PTT results. Typically, the possibilities are addressed by hematologists and can be due to factor deficiencies (acquired or genetic) or to inhibitors. Some factor deficiencies (xi, ix, viii) identified by PTT prolongation cause bleeding. Some (xii) do not. ...Read more

The pt and PTT labs measure components of the blood clotting cascade. Abnormalities of one or the other or both lead towards the type of clotting abnormality (extrinsic or intrinsic pathway abnormality).
Inr is the international normalized ratio, a derived number based on pt to normalize a variation done in different labs or with different testing systems. It is used in patients on coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more
