Genetic Testing for Hereditary Thrombophilia


It is possible to determine the genetic predisposition to thrombophilia in the Molecular Diagnostics and Oncogenetics Laboratory of Todua Clinic. These tests are carried out using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method.


Thrombophilia is a condition associated with an increased risk of thromboembolism. Blood clotting factors are genetically determined in the human body, and prevention of thrombotic complications depends on their normal functioning.

Sometimes a mutation occurs in the genes that determine these factors, which causes the blood clotting system to no longer function normally and leads to the formation of a blood clot.


Diseases such as myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, and deep vein thrombosis are common in people with thrombophilia.


Of particular note is the development of these conditions at a young age and in people with a family history of such diseases.


Pregnancy abnormalities are also common:

Recurrent miscarriages

Placental abruption

Foetal growth retardation

Preterm labour

Pregnancy eclampsia-preeclampsia

Failure of in vitro fertilisation
