Answer

Antithrombin III (ATIII) deficiency may be quickly corrected with infusions of antithrombin III concentrates. Long-term therapy for congenital deficiency is generally not indicated, as an asymptomatic period may last decades. Once thrombosis has occurred, warfarin therapy is generally undertaken.
