Thrombosis and Thrombophilia Weekly Fact


Outside of raising funds for NATT (which is coming along really well... Thanks for wondering), I would like to use this resource to pass along some basic knowledge about blood clots and blood clotting disorders. There is not one day that goes by in which I don't get to learn something new about this topic.

So, as I learn I would like for some of the people out there to learn as well. Overtime, I hope that all of us become aware that knowledge is power when it relates to blood clots and blood clotting disorders.

What is Thrombosis?

A blood clot that forms within a blood vessel. When the blockage occurs in a heart artery, it is called a coronary thrombosis.

What is Thrombophilia?

A hereditary or acquired predisposition to develop blood clots. It is also referred to as hypercoagulable state or hypercoagulability.

If you would like to dig a little dipper about these terms please visit NATT's Website and dig as far as you want...

I have to get going to the gym to get a little cross training work out in.

Thanks for reading,

The Clot Buster
