Factor V Leiden deficiency

Factor V Leiden deficiency….. Clot factor deficiency will cause bleeding so its not a hypercoagulable condition

Extra Edge: Factor V Leiden

1. Factor V Leiden thrombophilia is a genetically inherited disorder of blood clotting.

2. Factor V Leiden is a variant (mutated form) of human factor V that causes an increase in blood clotting (hypercoagulability).

3. In this disorder, the Leiden variant (form) of factor V cannot be inactivated by activated protein C, and so clotting is encouraged.

4. Factor V Leiden is the most common hereditary hypercoagulability.
