Answer

Coagulation study findings in patients with factor X deficiency include the following:

  • The prothrombin time (PT) is prolonged

  • The activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) is prolonged

  • The Russell viper venom time (RVVT) is prolonged; Russell viper venom cleaves factor X to produce active factor Xa

  • Bleeding time is within the reference range
