Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) is a laboratory test used to evaluate the coagulation pathways in your body. This test is essential for detecting blood clotting issues, which can cause various health problems. IntroLab laboratory in Belgrade is fully equipped to perform this test.

What is a PTT?

The aPTT test measures the time it takes for blood plasma to form a clot after specific reagents are added. This time typically ranges from 25 to 35 seconds but can be longer in individuals with coagulation disorders or those on anticoagulant therapy, such as heparin.

When and why is this Test Performed?

The Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time test is used in the following situations:

  • Diagnosing Coagulation Disorders: This test helps identify disorders such as hemophilia and von Willebrand disease, which cause abnormal bleeding and require proper diagnosis and treatment.
  • Monitoring Heparin Therapy: Heparin affects the blood clotting process. The a PTT test is used to monitor its effects, ensuring the correct dosage and preventing excessive bleeding.
  • Preoperative Screening: Before surgery, assessing the risk of bleeding is crucial. The a PTT test can detect clotting issues that could increase the risk of bleeding during or after surgery.
  • Diagnosing Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC): DIC is a serious condition causing uncontrolled bleeding and blood clots throughout the body. The a PTT test aids in diagnosing this condition.
  • Diagnosing and Monitoring Autoimmune Diseases: This test is useful for diagnosing and monitoring autoimmune diseases like lupus, which can impact the blood clotting system.
  • Diagnosing Liver Diseases: The liver plays a key role in blood coagulation, and liver function problems can affect clotting. The aPTT test helps detect these issues.

Each of these situations requires precise and accurate diagnosis. The aPTT test provides critical insights into the blood coagulation system, making it an indispensable tool in modern medical practice.

Specifics and Variations of the a PTT Test

The a PTT test can be tailored to the specific needs of the patient. For example, it can be used to assess different aspects of blood coagulation or combined with other tests to gain a more detailed understanding of the patient’s health condition.
