Management of antiphospholipid antibody
syndrome: asystematic review.
Regular obstetric practice, blood pressure, fetal heartbeat, clinical symptoms of lupus, laboratory tests including complete blood count, routine urine test, blood biochemical test, 24-hour urine protein, complement C3 and C4, anti-dsDNA antibodies, anti-SSA antibodies, anti-SSB antibodies, antiphospholipid antibody
(including anticardiolipin (aCL) antibody IgM, aCL antibody IgG, and anti-[beta]2GP1 antibody lupus anticoagulants (LAC)), and medical treatments were recorded.
The presence of elevated D-dimer levels and multiple thromboses in the absence of known risk factors, including immobilization, drugs, or trauma, in addition to the correctable prolonged APTT and positive antiphospholipid antibody
results, led to the diagnosis of APS.
