The next IFCC webinar: "D-dimers and different clinical applications" July 6, 2022
DDimers is a determination that has several applications. It's classic use is to rule out thrombosis and can be also used to predict its recurrence.
D-Dimer (DD) is a molecule that comes from the degradation of stabilized fibrin. Its presence indicates fibrinolysis secondary to the formation of a fibrin clot.
Therefore, it constitutes a specific marker of fibrinolytic activity in processes that produce excessive fibrin formation, even without being thrombotic.
