CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE
D-Dimer is a small protein fragment, present in the blood after a blood clot is degraded by fibrinolysis by plasmin. D-Dimer contains a chemical bond, connecting the two fibrin monomers, that is not present in fibrinogen, so D-dimer is specific to fibrin degradation1.

The quantitation of D-Dimer allows detection and estimation of the severity of intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis. It is also valuable on monitoring anticoagulant therapy and for ruling out disseminated intravascular coagulation2.
