Rare Clotting Factor Deficiencies & Oral Surgery
Patients with Rare Clotting Factor Deficiencies
Clotting / Coagulation Factors are proteins in the blood that control bleeding.
If any of the clotting factors are deficient or defective, the coagulation cascade is blocked. When this happens, the blood clot does not form & bleeding continues longer than it should.
Rare clotting factor deficiencies are bleeding disorders in where clotting factors other than those of Factors VIII & IX (otherwise known as Hæmophilias) are deficient / defective.
These are Factors I, II, V, VII, X, XI, XII & XIII.
