VASCULAR SURGERY: Pathological Processes Related to Vascular
1. Basic Applied Anatomy and Physiology:
Embolism = any intravascular solid, liquid, or
Arterial and Venous Blood Supply of the Body: gaseous mass carried by blood flow to a site
distant from its origin.

Haemostasis is a normal, physiologic
process maintaining blood in a fluid,
clot-free state within normal vessels
while inducing a rapid, localized
hemostatic plug at sites of vascular

Thrombosis represents a pathologic
state; it is the inappropriate activation of
hemostatic mechanisms in uninjured
vessels or thrombotic occlusion after
relatively minor injury. Hemostasis and
thrombosis are closely related
processes that depend upon three
components: endothelium, platelets,
and coagulation cascade.
