BACKGROUND Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a possible complication of heparin therapy that can evolve with life-threatening thromboembolism, for which early diagnosis is essential. However, the specific laboratory approach to the diagnosis of HIT is still controversial. METHODS Sera from 13 patients with HIT, from 15 patients with non-HIT thrombocytopenia, and from 10 normal subjects were used to compare nonfunctional and functional methods to detect anti-heparin:PF-4 antibodies and… CONTINUE READING
