Test Id : ALBLI

Limited Bleeding Diathesis Profile Interpretation

Useful For
Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Detection of the more common potential causes of abnormal bleeding (eg, factor deficiencies/hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, factor-specific inhibitors) and a simple screen to evaluate for an inhibitor or severe deficiency of factor XIII (rare).

 

This test is not useful for assessing platelet function (eg, congenital or acquired disorders such as Glanzmann thrombasthenia, Bernard-Soulier syndrome, storage pool disease, myeloproliferative disease, associated platelet dysfunction), which requires fresh platelets

Clinical Information
Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test

Bleeding problems may be associated with a wide variety of coagulation abnormalities or may be due to problems not associated with coagulation (trauma and surgery as obvious examples). A partial listing of causes follows. 

-Deficiency or functional abnormality (congenital or acquired) of any of the following coagulation proteins: fibrinogen (factor I), factor II (prothrombin), factor V, factor VII, factor VIII (hemophilia A), factor IX (hemophilia B), factor X, factor XI (hemophilia C; bleeding severity not  always proportionate to factor level), factor XIII (fibrin-stabilizing factor), von Willebrand factor (VWF antigen and activity), and alpha-2 plasmin inhibitor and plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-I; severe deficiency in rare cases). Neither alpha-2 plasmin inhibitor nor PAI-I are included as a routine bleeding diathesis assay component, but either can be performed if indicated or requested.

-Deficiency (thrombocytopenia) or functional abnormality of platelets such as congenital (eg, Glanzmann thrombasthenia, Bernard-Soulier syndrome, storage pool disorders) and acquired (eg, myeloproliferative disorders, uremia, drugs) disorders. Platelet function abnormalities cannot be studied on mailed-in specimens.

-Specific factor inhibitors (most commonly directed against factor VIII); factor inhibitors occur in 10% to15% of the hemophilia population and are more commonly associated with severe deficiencies of factor VIII or IX (antigen <1%). The inhibitor appears in response to transfusion therapy with factor concentrates with no correlation of occurrence and amount of therapy. Factor VIII inhibitors may occur spontaneously in the postpartum patient, with certain malignancies, in association with autoimmune disorders (eg, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus), in the elderly, and for no apparent reason.

-Other acquired causes of increased bleeding include paraproteinemia; other factor-specific inhibitors, including those against factor V, factor XI; or virtually any of the coagulation proteins.

-Acute disseminated intravascular coagulation/intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis (DIC/ICF), which is a fairly common cause of bleeding. Bleeding can also occur in patients with chronic ICF.

Reference Values
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

Only orderable as part of a profile. For more information see ALBLD / Bleeding Diathesis Profile, Limited, Plasma.

 

An interpretive report will be provided.

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

An interpretive report will be provided.

Cautions
Discusses conditions that may cause diagnostic confusion, including improper specimen collection and handling, inappropriate test selection, and interfering substances

Patient should not be receiving Coumadin or heparin. If the patient is currently on warfarin or heparin, this should be noted, as warfarin or heparin therapy can affect certain coagulation factors or assays, preclude their performance, or cause spurious results. Patient should also not be receiving fibrinolytic agents (streptokinase, urokinase, tissue plasminogen activator: tPA).

 

If patient has been recently transfused, this should be noted; it is best to perform this study pretransfusion, if possible.

Method Description
Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

A coagulation expert (clinician or hematopathologist) reviews the laboratory data and an interpretive report is issued.

PDF Report
Indicates whether the report includes an additional document with charts, images or other enriched information

Day(s) Performed
Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday through Friday

Report Available
The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

Varies

Specimen Retention Time
Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

7 days

Performing Laboratory Location
Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test

Test Classification
Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR) product.

Not Applicable

CPT Code Information
Provides guidance in determining the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code(s) information for each test or profile. The listed CPT codes reflect Mayo Clinic Laboratories interpretation of CPT coding requirements. It is the responsibility of each laboratory to determine correct CPT codes to use for billing.

CPT codes are provided by the performing laboratory.
