Disoders of secondary hemostasis

Disoders of secondary hemostasis

Disorders of plasma clotting factors

Disorders of secondary hemostasis

Disorders of Secondary Hemostasis

  • Disorders of the proteins of fibrin formation

  • Disorders of proteins associated with fibrinolysis

  • Symptoms of secondary hemostatic disorders

    • Delayed bleeding

    • Deep muscular bleeding

    • Spontaneous joint bleeding

    • Symptoms common to primary and secondary hemostatic disorders

      • Ecchymoses

      • GI bleeding

      • Hematuria

      • Hypermenorrhea

      • Gingival bleeding

      • Increased bleeding after tooth extraction

      • Intracranial bleeding

      • Epistaxis

Disorders of proteins of fibrin formation

Disorders of Proteins of Fibrin Formation

  • Hereditary vs acquired

  • Quantitative vs qualitative deficiencies

    • Laboratory screening tests (PT, APTT)

      • Does not differentiate quantitative vs qualitative disorders

    • Qualitative abnormal proteins will

      • Prolong clotting test

      • Be recognized by immunologically-based procedures

  • Activity assays

    • Essential when screening for deficiencies

Coagulation screening tests in congenital deficiencies

Von willebrand disease

von Willebrand Disease

  • Inherited hemorrhagic disorder

    • Genetically and clinically heterogeneous

    • Caused by a deficiency/dysfunction of VWF

    • Most common hereditary bleeding disorder

  • VWF

    • Multimeric blood protein

    • Performs two major roles in hemostasis

      • Mediates adhesion of platelets to sites of vascular injury

      • Is a carrier protein for F-VIII

  • Inherited defects in VWF may

    • Interfere with biosynthetic processing or disrupt specific ligand binding sites

    • Cause bleeding by impairing either platelet adhesion or blood clotting

Disoders of secondary hemostasis


  • Three major categories of VWD

    • Type 1 VWD – partial quantitative deficiency of VWF

    • Type 2 VWD – qualitative deficiency of VWF

      • Divided into 4 variants

      • Type 2A – ↓ platelet-dependent function

        • Absence of high-molecular weight VWF multimers

      • Type 2B – ↑ affinity for platlet GPIb

      • Type 2M – ↓ platelet-dependent function

        • Not caused by the absence of HMW multimers

      • Type 2N – Markedly ↓ affinity for F-VIII

    • Type 3 VWD – total deficiency of VWF

    • Types 1 and 2 – autosomal dominant inheritance

    • Type 3 – autosomal recessive inheritance

  • Diagnosis

    • Specific tests

      • Quantify VWF and F-VIII activity

Vwd clinical manifestations

VWD – Clinical Manifestations

  • Hemorrhagic tendency is highly variable

    • Depends on the type and severity of disease

    • Patients with Type 1 and 2 disease

      • May have mild bleeding symptoms

      • Characterized by hemorrhage from delicate mucocutaneous tissues

      • Epistaxis, easy bruising, GI bleeding, menorrhagia

      • Hematoma and hemarthroses, characteristic of hemophilia A, are not prominent

    • Patients with severe type 3 VWD

      • Severe hemorrhagic tendency

      • Spontaneous hemorrhage

        • Mucous membranes, GI tract

        • Can be frequent and may be life threatening

      • Low F-VIII level

        • Deep hematomas

        • Joint hemorrhages – similar to hemophilia

Vwd therapy

VWD – Therapy

  • Goal

    • Correct both bleeding time and coagulation abnormalities

      • Raise both F-VIII and VWF to normal levels

        • Desmopressin acetate (DDAVP) stimulates release of vWF from endothelial cells – won’t work for type 3

        • Intermediate purity factor VIII which contains intact vWF



  • Hemophilia A

    • Factor VIII Deficiency

      • AntihemophilicFactor

      • X-linked recessive disorder

      • Most common type of hemophilia

  • Hemophilia B

    • Factor IX Deficiency

      • Christmas Factor (from family of first patients diagnosed with the disorder)

      • X-linked recessive disorder

  • Hemophilia C

    • Factor XI Deficiency

    • Autosomal recessive disorder seen primarily in the Ashkenazi Jewish population

    • Symptoms range from mild to severe

Coagulation screening tests in congenital deficiencies1

Coagulation screening tests in congenital deficiencies



  • Insufficient generation of thrombinby

    • F-IXa/VIIIa complex through the intrinsic pathway of coagulation cascade

    • Bleeding severity complicated by excessive fibrinolysis

  • Clinical severity corresponds with level of factor activity

  • Severe hemophilia

    • Factor coagulant activity <1% of normal

    • Frequent spontaneous bleeding into joints and soft tissues

    • Prolonged bleeding with trauma or surgery



  • Moderate hemophilia

    • Factor coagulant activity 1-5% of normal

    • Occasional spontaneous bleeding

    • Excessive bleeding with surgery or trauma

  • Mild hemophilia

    • Factor coagulant activity >5% of normal

    • Usually no spontaneous bleeding

    • Excessive bleeding with surgery or trauma

Hemophilia clinical presentation

Hemophilia – Clinical Presentation

  • Readily diagnosed

    • In severe disease and patients with prior family history

  • Diagnosis based on

    • Unusual bleeding symptoms early in life

    • Age of first bleeding varies with severity of disease

    • Family history

    • Physical exam

    • Laboratory evaluation

Hemophilia treatment

Hemophilia – Treatment

  • Replacement of clotting factor to achieve hemostasis

    • Annual cost for patient with severe hemophilia

      • $20,000-100,000

  • Various products available

    • Plasma-derived low, intermediate and high purity products

    • Plasma-derived ultrapure products

    • Ultrapure recombinant products

  • Replacement products – benefits vs risks

    • Blood-born pathogens

      • Hepatitis A, B, C, G; HIV, Parvovirus B-19

      • Thrombotic complications with some F-IX concentrations

      • Development of alloantibody inhibitors

        • Neutralize coagulant effects of replacement therapy

Acquired disorders

Acquired Disorders

  • More common than hereditary disorders

    • Usually involve defects of multiple hemostatic factors

    • Bleeding often simultaneously from >1 site

    • May occur in response to another disease process

    • Can be produced by a variety of mechanisms

Disseminated intravascular coagulation

Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation

  • Normal balance of hemostasis is altered

  • Results in the uncontrolled inappropriate formation and lysis of fibrin within the blood vessels

  • Activation of coagulation occurs systemically

    • Rather than locally at site of injury

  • Fibrin is deposited diffusely within capillaries, arterioles and venules

  • Clotting proteins, inhibitors and platelets are consumed faster than they are synthesized

    • Acquired deficiency of multiple hemostatic components

    • Fibrinolysis follows fibrin formation

    • Patient generally bleeds spontaneously at the same time that disseminated clotting is occurring

Clinical conditions associated with dic

Clinical conditions associated with DIC

Dic pathophysiology

DIC - Pathophysiology

  • Fibrin strands within small vessels result in

    • Traumatic destruction of RBC

      • Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia

      • Formation of schistocytes

  • Fibrin deposition in and obstruction of microvasculature

    • Tissue anoxia/microinfarcts

    • Renal failure, liver failure, respiratory failure, shock and death

Disoders of secondary hemostasis


  • HELLP syndrome

    • High blood pressure

    • Elevated liver enzymes

    • Low platlets

    • Occurs in pregnancy and is life-threatening

    • If the CBC of a woman in labor shows schistocytes and low platlets alert the physician immediately – the baby must be delivered immediately to save the mom!

Dic laboratory diagnosis

DIC – Laboratory Diagnosis

  • Laboratory diagnosis is difficult

    • Available tests are nonspecific

    • No single test can establish the definitive diagnosis of DIC

    • PT, APTT, TT prolonged

    • Fibrin degradation products are (+)

    • Platelet count ↓; platelet function tests abnormal

    • Schistocytes, thrombocytopenia on peripheral blood smear

Dic therapy

DIC – Therapy

  • Eliminate underlying cause, if possible

    • Acute DIC is often self-limited

      • Will disappear when fibrin is lysed

    • Replacement therapy

      • Platelets, RBC, Cryoprecipitate or fresh frozen plasma

Vitamin k deficiency

Vitamin K Deficiency

  • Precursor proteins synthesized by hepatocytes

    • Not γ-carboxylated

    • Ca++-binding sites are nonfunctional

    • Induced functional deficiencies of all vitamin-K dependent proteins

    • Causes of vitamin K deficiency in adults

      • Malabsorptive syndromes

      • Biliary tract obstruction

      • Prolonged broad-spectrum antibiotics

  • Most often seen in newborns

    • Hemorrhagic disease of the newborn

      • Due to newborn hepatic immaturity

Acquired pathologic inhibitors

Acquired Pathologic Inhibitors

  • Circulating anticoagulants

    • Usually IgG or IgM immunoglobulins

    • Inhibitors of single factors

      • Patients with inherited factor deficiencies

        • After treatment with replacement concentrates

      • Associated with other conditions

        • Diseases, drugs

      • Occasionally seen in otherwise healthy individuals

      • Interfere with or neutralize clotting factor activity

      • Prolonged screening test not corrected by 1:1 mixture with normal plasma
