Markers: Diagnostic Utility in Hemostatic Disorders

We recognize that companies are cutting back on travel-related discretionary spending, so we are bringing our ISLH symposium to you! We now have the symposium available as a webinar to enable you to learn more about platelet morphology and coagulation markers when it’s convenient for you―24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

View our webinar and learn about the diagnostic utility of platelet morphology and coagulation activation markers.

Presentations:

Clinical and laboratory approach to disseminated intravascular coagulopathy in different clinical scenarios and the role of D-dimer

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a serious complication of many clinical scenarios including infection/sepsis, malignancy, and trauma or surgery. DIC remains a clinical diagnosis supported by laboratory data.

Platelet parameters and morphology investigation: where these can help in diagnosing platelet disorders

Inherited thrombocytopenias (IT) are heterogeneous disorders affecting platelet count and function. Distinguishing IT from immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a practical challenge, and

therefore, patients are at risk of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment such as administration of intravenous steroids, immunoglobulins and/or needless splenectomy. Diagnostic difficulties reported in literature will be illustrated by clinical cases from the speaker’s individual experience.

Attend the symposium and learn about:

The DIC scoring system introduced by the ISTH/SSC

D-dimer as the key marker for DIC diagnosis and prognosis

Platelet size and morphology analysis

MPV values—differences between hematology analyzers
