hypercoagulable states

hypercoagulable states

Conditions in which the tendency for the blood to clot is greater than normal so that coagulation may occur within the blood vessels. Hypercoagulabilty occurs in people with excessive numbers of blood platelets, in the Budd-Chiari syndrome, in women on the oral contraceptive pill and in people with cancer.
