What is a Clotting Disorder ?
Hematology and BMT Institute International describes a group of clotting disorders in which there is an increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Clotting disorders can be due to inherited genetic abnormalities that are associated with a life-long increased tendency to clot.
Hematology and BMT Institute International provide comprehensive care for people with clotting and bleeding disorders.

However, if a deep vein thrombosis forms the symptoms are:
- Soreness or pain in an arm or leg
- Coolness or warmth over an area of an arm or leg
- Red, pale, or bluish skin color
- Swelling in an arm or legs
- A fast heartbeat
- Trouble breathing
- Chest pain
Some of the clotting disorders are:
These are common blood Clotting Disorders
Factor V Leiden:
This inherited disorder increases the risk for deep vein thrombosis. These are clots that appear deep in the body, usually in the thigh or lower leg. This disorder also increases complications with pregnancy like miscarriage. It is the most common inherited clotting disorder and happens most often in children of European descent. Although many people inherit this abnormality, most never have an abnormal blood clot.
This clotting disorder is the second most common type. It also increases the risk for deep vein thrombosis and pregnancy complications. These include slowed fetal development and miscarriage. It is also most likely to occur in those of European descent. Only a small percentage of people with this disorder will ever have an abnormal blood clot.
Protein C deficiency:
The severity of this condition varies from mild, which is most common, to severe. Most people who have it will have no symptoms or simply have an increased risk for deep vein thrombosis during recovery from surgery or periods of immobility. Babies born with the severe form of this condition, however, can develop tiny blood clots throughout their body that prevent blood flow and may cause fatal tissue death.
Protein S deficiency:
The severity of this condition also varies. As with protein C deficiency, most people who have it will have no symptoms or simply have increased risk for deep vein thrombosis during recovery from surgery or periods of immobility. But those born with the severe form of this condition can develop tiny blood clots that may lead to fatal tissue death.
This inherited disorder significantly increases the chance of developing abnormal blood clots. About half of those with this disorder will develop at least one clot, usually after adolescence. These clots may cause deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
