Coagulation begins almost instantly after an injury to the blood vessel has damaged the endothelium lining the vessel. Exposure of the blood to proteins such as tissue factor initiates changes to blood platelets. Platelets immediately form a plug at the site of injury. Proteins in the blood plasma, respond in a complex cascade to form fibrin strands, which strengthen the platelet plug.
