From Anne Gaffney: Hi George, we would like to discontinue our fibrin degradation products (FDP , fibrin split products, FSP ) latex agglutination testing, however the OB docs like to use the less sensitive test as the D-dimer test is "always" positive in their pregnant patients. Do you have any evidence based literature to help us support our discontinuation of this test? Have there been any studies in regards to a D-dimer "cut-off" for r/o of VTE in the pregnant patient? Thanks for any insight you may have!
