Structures and products of endothelial cells—the cells lining blood vessels—maintain blood fluidity by preventing excessive clotting and prevent bleeding by promoting clotting. The endothelium-associated terms listed in Table 14.7-2 are presented as a guide to style.
Three glycoprotein complexes are synonymous with 3 integrins and take part in hemostasis:...
Hemostasis consists of platelet plug formation (primary hemostasis)1 and blood coagulation (secondary hemostasis, coagulation, clotting). Hemostasis and its control involve complex interactions of numerous procoagulants and anticoagulants. Description of hemostatic processes depends on consistent use of terms.

Blood coagulation (secondary hemostasis1) is the phase of clot formation dependent on plasma coagulation factors (also known as clotting factors).
The laboratory evaluation of plasma factor–dependent coagulation has been divided into 2 pathways (systems, phases). The following terms and synonyms are used:
