DOC: CLOTTING AND COAGULATION DISORDERS IN CATS


These affect the ability of the blood to coagulate. Coagulation, the process of clot formation, is achieved in vivo by a combination of primary and secondary haemostasis (Stokol 2005). Although clotting disorders usually refer to secondary haemostatic disorders, primary haemostasis will also be discussed briefl y due to the close integration and clinical need to differentiate between the two....

  AN INSIGHT INTO BLOOD CLOTTING DISORDERS IN HUMANS

... THE MECHANISM OF COAGULATION NEEDS TO BE CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD FOR DETERMINING THE PREOPERATIVE BLEEDING RISK TO PATIENTS UNDERGOING SURGERY AND MANAGING HAEMOSTATIC THERAPY PREOPERATIVELY. THE COAGULATION CASCADE OF HEMOSTASIS HAS TWO PATHWAYS, THE CONTACT ACTIVATION PATHWAY (FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE INTRINSIC PATHWAY), AND THE TISSUE FACTOR PATHWAY (FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE EXTRINSIC PATHWAY), WHICH LEAD TO FIBRIN FORMATION. ...
