Of note, deficiencies of factor XII, prekallikrein, and/or high molecular weight kininogen are not associated with a bleeding diathesis, despite the fact that they are associated with extreme prolongations of the PTT. Lupus anticoagulants, unfractionated (but not low molecular weight) heparin, long-term warfarin therapy, DTIs, and specific (alloantibodies or autoantibodies) neutralizing inhibitors of coagulation proteins prolong the PTT. The ability to correct prolonged PTT by mixing equal volumes of patient plasma with pooled normal plasma over 1 to 2 hours at 37 C indicates a clotting factor deficiency, which can then be identified with the use of assays and specific clotting factor–deficient substrates.

Thus, PTs are reported as an international normalized ratio (INR), which was developed to minimize these differences when patients are anticoagulated with warfarin. This conversion allows for warfarin dosing to be reliably adjusted, regardless of where the PT assay is performed. 0) from the World Health Organization. The INR is calculated as the ratio of the patient’s PT to the mean normal PTobtained from pooled normal plasma, which is then raised to the ISI as an exponential power: INR ¼ (patient’s PT/mean normal PT)ISI.
