The article presents an examination into the authors' model of vascular hemostasis. An overview of hypercoagulable and hemostasis states is given, explaining the physiological mechanisms regarding blood fluidity and clotting. The authors' give a detailed analysis of the focal patterns of thrombosis are studied in human and animal systems. The regulation of hemostasis is theorized to relate to vascular beds. Connections and speculations are given relating to medical research on blood chemistry.
