What is a Thrombus?

Thrombus is another name for Blood Clot. A blood clot is a clump of blood that is in a gelatinous, solid state.

Blood clotting is an important process that prevents excessive bleeding when a blood vessel is injured. Platelets (a type of blood cell) and proteins in the blood work together to stop the bleeding by forming a clot over the injury.

Thrombosis is the condition that occurs when a blood clot develops within veins and arteries, causing the blood flow to be restricted or completely stopped. This blockage causes pressure to build up, and can result in very serious life threatening issues.
