SEVRINI, Inés et al. Importance of D Dimer testing in the biologic control of pregnancy in patients with thrombophilia. Arch. Med Int [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.2, pp.25-27. ISSN 0250-3816.

The D-Dimers by ELISA, increased gradually in the course of normal pregnancy and in patients with thrombophilia. Serves as a biological control is these patients for early detection of complications and be able to adjust dose treatment with low molecular weight heparin. The objective is to determine whether D-Dimers by other techniques (D-Dimers: BCS [Enol]) and D-Dimers: STA Compact (Roche) are useful in pregnant women with thrombophilia or suspected. Results: of the 226 patients studied, 93 had no complications and although there is a slight increase in median values of D-Dimer at the end of pregnancy, the increase was not significant. In the 133 patients who developed complications showed no remarkable increase of D-Dimer linked to the presence of any complications. Conclusion: in contrast to other studies published in D-Dimers by ELISA technique, the D-Dimers by BCS and STA Compact technique did not show the expected changes in the different trimesters of pregnancy or with respect to the presence of complications in pregnant women
