What is Virchows triad?
Virchow’s triad is a basis for understanding the factors that contribute to thrombosis, including:
- • A hypercoagulable state, such as caused by malignancy, nephrotic syndrome, or oral contraceptives.
- • Vascular stasis resulting from shock, heart failure, venous obstruction, extrinsic compression, or other causes.
- • Vascular injury secondary to various causes, such as trauma, inflammation, surgery, or central lines.
