A variant in the SERPINF2 gene has been identified in Scottish Deerhounds that is associated with an increased risk of developing delayed postoperative hemorrhage (DEPOH) in that breed. Clinical signs are the unexpected, excessive bleeding or bruising starting 1 to 4 days after a surgical procedure. The symptoms vary from frank bleeding from the wound, to excessive and also progressive bruising of the skin surrounding the wound and hemoabdomen. The results of coagulation screening tests like the measurements of prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time and von Willebrand factor antigen, as well as platelet counts were unremarkable.
Compared to dogs not carrying the marker variant, dogs with two variant alleles as well as dogs with one variant allele show an increased risk of developing DEPOH.
autosomal dominant with incomplete penetrance
Test duration
1-2 weeks after arrival of the sample in the lab
