Several studies have shown that patients with venous thrombosis have elevated levels of factor VIII (FVIII) at an increased frequency. Most such patients also have high von Willebrand factor (vWF) levels. Since vWF is synthesized by the vascular endothelium, we hypothesized that elevated FVIII levels would also be associated with an increase of other… CONTINUE READING
