Factor V Leiden

Aka: Factor V Leiden, Factor 5 Leiden, Activated Protein C resistance, APC Resistance
  1. Epidemiology
    1. Responsible for 20-50% of Hypercoagulable patients
    2. Incidence of Autosomal Dominant genetic defect
      1. Europeans: 15%
      2. North America: 3-5%
  2. Risks
    1. Heterozygote: 5-10 times the risk of thrombosis
    2. Homozygote: 50-100 times the risk of thrombosis
  3. Pathophysiology
    1. Factor V is a Cofactor for Factor X
    2. Defect prevents Factor V degradation by Protein C
  4. Labs
    1. Activated Protein C (APC) resistance
      1. Can not be anticoagulated when this lab run
    2. PCR for Factor V Leiden
      1. Responsible for 95% of APC Resistance
      2. Does NOT require that patient be off Anticoagulation
  5. Complications
    1. Deep Vein Thrombosis
    2. Pulmonary Embolism
    3. Myocardial Infarction

Activated Protein C Resistance (C0600433)

Definition (MSH) A hemostatic disorder characterized by a poor anticoagulant response to activated protein C (APC). The activated form of Factor V (Factor Va) is more slowly degraded by activated protein C. Factor V Leiden mutation (R506Q) is the most common cause of APC resistance.
