Transcript

Three factors predispose patients to thrombosis. They are stasis, hypercoagulability, and vessel wall injury. These are commonly referred to as Virchow’s triad. Stasis is caused by such states as being hospitalised or immobilised. Vessel wall injury refers to factors such as calf injury. Hypercoagulability can occur due to disorders in blood clotting.
