What Does Blood Coagulation Mean?

Blood coagulation or clotting is a vital process that prevents excessive bleeding in case a blood vessel gets injured. In this process, proteins present in the plasma and platelets (component of blood cell) function as a unit to stop bleeding by the formation of a clot (mesh-like) on the injury. Generally, the body dissolves the blood clot naturally once the injury gets healed.

In some cases, however, the clots form on the insides of vessels with no such apparent injury or do not naturally dissolve. Such instances can be dangerous and need to be taken into consideration for a diagnosis and treatment.
