This demonstrates the importance of the incubation step in performing the 50:50 mixing test. Really strong inhibitors may prolong the 50:50 mix aPTT even at time 0, but the aPTT will be more prolonged with longer incubation. Bleeding Time Once a standard screening test, the bleeding time is now very controversial. It is best viewed as sensitive but not specific. If a patient has a normal bleeding time, then their risk of bleeding with a procedure is low. Unfortunately, a prolonged bleeding time does not reliably predict bleeding with a procedure.
The INR is a method of standardizing prothrombin times obtained from different laboratories. The INR is derived by dividing the patient’s prothrombin time by the control and raising this to the International Sensitivity Index (ISI). The ISI is known for each prothrombin time laboratory reagent and it adjusts the prothrombin time for the differing sensitivities of reagents. Using the INR instead of the prothrombin time has resulted in more accurate monitoring of warfarin dosage. Many laboratories now only report the INR and not the prothrombin time.
One difficulty is the lack of monitoring. Three doses often suffice for joint bleeds while prolonged administration (up to 10-14 days) is required for major surgery or intercranial hemorrhage. Theoretically in patients with a high titer of inhibitors, plasmapheresis can be performed to removed the antibody in an emergency. Given the difficulties of line placement and the time it takes to perform the procedure, plasmapheresis is only practical for situations such as planned necessary surgery. With aggressive therapy patient with inhibitors can develop tolerance.
