Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


Experiments on rabbits showed that the period of organization of a venous thrombus and the first 24 h after thrombosis is characterized by a decrease in the number of platelets and in their coagulation, adhesive, and electrophoretic activity and by an increase in their aggregation and sedimentation rate. The changes in platelet function became less marked 2–5 days after thrombosis and were actually characteristic of hemorrhage.
