Follow a stepwise strategy for thrombophilia testing that considers the clinical scenario (when to test), the implications of testing (why to test), and then the overall approach to testing (how to test). Use a selective strategy that focuses on the highest-yield thrombophilia testing first. Defer testing for deficiencies of protein C, protein S, and antithrombin because low levels do not necessarily indicate true thrombophilia in the setting of acute thrombosis and anticoagulation.
