Prueba serológica para la sífilis (VDRL) - Risks

Nombres alternativos

Batería de pruebas del laboratorio de investigación de enfermedades venéreas (VDRL)

Riesgos:

Las venas y las arterias varían en tamaño de un paciente a otro y de un lado del cuerpo a otro, razón por la cual extraer sangre de algunas personas puede ser más difícil que de otras.

Otros riesgos asociados con la extracción de sangre son leves, pero pueden ser:

  • Sangrado excesivo
  • Desmayo o sensación de mareo
  • Hematoma (acumulación de sangre debajo de la piel)
  • Infección (un riesgo leve cada vez que se presenta ruptura de la piel)

Consideraciones:

El cuerpo no siempre produce anticuerpos específicamente en respuesta a la bacteria de la sífilis, de tal manera que este examen no siempre es preciso.
