Thrombosis (blood clots)
Our doctors will conduct a physical examination to evaluate symptoms of a blood clot. The thrombosis will be confirmed through imaging tests including:
We may collect blood samples to evaluate whether your child’s blood is clotting normally and identify any abnormalities in the levels of certain proteins. Genetic tests may also be performed to check for hereditary disorders (inherited thrombophilia).
After we complete all necessary tests, our experts meet to review and discuss what they have learned about your child's condition. Then we will meet with you and your family to discuss the results and outline the best treatment options.
