In brief: PTT
An elevated PTT can be seen in certain hemophilic disorders, with the use of medications such as heparin, and in conditions such as antiphospholipid antibody syndrome and disseminated intravascular coagulation.
Abnormal PTT testing must be investigated by a hematologist so that an appropriate diagnosis and any necessary treatment can be initiated.
