Overview

Common risk factors in the development of acquired thrombophlias are trauma, surgery, immobility, pregnancy, oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, and age. Common risk factors for the development of inherited thrombophilias are a family history of thrombosis at an early age or a family history of inherited thrombophilia. Common genetic risk factors in the development of inherited thrombophilias are mutations in factor V leiden and prothrombin G20210A.

Risk Factors

Common risk factors for the development of inherited thrombophilias are a family history of thrombosis at an early age or a family history of inherited thrombophilia.

Common genetic risk factors in the development of inherited thrombophilias are mutations in Factor V Leiden and Prothrombin G20210A.[1][2][3]
