Bleeding and thrombotic disorders

Haemophilia

Haemophilia is a mostly inherited genetic disorder that impairs the body’s ability to make blood clots, a process needed to stop bleeding.

There are two main types of haemophilia: haemophilia A, which occurs due to not enough clotting factor VIII, and haemophilia B, which occurs due to not enough clotting factor IX.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Blood clots may form in the deep (hidden) blood vessels of the body, most commonly in the legs and groin, and can block normal blood flow returning to the heart.

Pulmonary Embolism

A pulmonary embolism occurs when a part or all of a deep vein clot breaks loose and is carried by the bloodstream to the lungs, where it blocks another blood vessel.
