Physiology of Coagulation

  1. 1. Introduction  Coagulation is a complex process by which blood forms clots.  An important part of hemostasis.  The process is described in 2 steps:  PRIMARY  SECONDARY
  2. 2. Primary Hemostasis Initiated within seconds. Short lived. Results in a soft platelet plug to seal the breach in the vessel wall.
  3. 3. Primary Hemostasis Step 1: Local Vasoconstriction
  4. 4. Step 2: Platelet adhesion and formation of soft platelet plug Primary Hemostasis
  5. 5. Secondary Hemostasis Platelet Membrane Coagulation Factors Co-factors
  6. 6. Role of Vitamin K Vitamin K Oxido- Reductase γ-Carboxylation
  7. 7. Evolution of Coagulation Theories
  8. 8. Both pathways are initiated independently and Unite only at Factor X (FX) and Factor V (FV) level CLASSICALCOAGULATIONCASCADE
  9. 9. Pitfalls in cascade model
  10. 10. Cell Based Model of Coagulation D. Monroe M. Hoffman Proposal  The cascade is a biochemical model.  NOT a true reflection of what happens in the body.
  11. 11. Differences in these models

  19. 19. Inhibitors of Coagulation • Inhibition of the TF-VIIa complex. • Binds to directly inactivate thrombin as well as the factors (IXa, Xa, and XIa). • Catalyses:Plasminogen  Plasmin
  20. 20. Inhibitors of Coagulation • Protein C is activated when thrombin binds to thrombomudulin. • Protein S boosts the activity of Protein C. • Jointly, they inactivate Factor Va & VIIIa. • Plasmin degrades fibrin strands. Prevents build-up of excess clot. Fibrinolytic System
  21. 21. Fibrinolysis RED:SUPRESSES BLUE:ACCELERATES Tissue Plasminogen Activator [tPA] α2 Antiplasmin Α2 Macroglobulin Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor 1&2 Thrombin Activatable Fibrinolysis Inhibitor Factor XIa, XIIa, Kallikrein Urokinase THROMBIN
  22. 22. Injury to vessel Platelet activation by contact to endothelium & subendothelium, →formation of Platelet Plug Coagulation pathway Activation → generation of thrombin & fibrin clot → Platelet Plug Stabilization Fibrinolysis & Clot Removal Control of clot extension by antithrombotic mechanisms Healing & Repair of injury
