ABSTRACT Hemostasis is a complicated mechanism finalized to preventing unjustified bleeding during vascular injury, or unwarranted thrombosis when the vessels are substantially intact. Hemostasis is typically classified in two essential steps. The first event is an endothelial injury, which activates primary hemostasis and is then followed by activation of secondary hemostasis. Specifically, primary hemostasis develops with recruitment of a many platelets being at site of vascular injury. Platelets are subjected to a sequential process of activation, adhesion and aggregation. This initial hemostatic plug is however unstable, since it is vulnerable to fast dissolution within in the local blood, especially in arteries. To prevent dissolution, additional fundamental mechanisms of secondary hemostasis (also known as blood coagulation) are activated, with the aim to stabilize the initial plot by large fibrin deposition. Read more.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER Giuseppe Lippi serves as Full Professor of Clinical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Verona (Italy) and Director of the Clinical Chemistry and Haematology laboratories of the University Hospital of Verona (Italy).
