Blood clot

(Science: haematology) The conversion of blood from a liquid form to solid through the process of coagulation.

a thrombus is a clot which forms inside of a blood vessel. If that clot moves inside the vessel it is referred to as an embolus (embolism). The presence of atherosclerotic plaque lining blood vessel walls is a significant stimulus for clot formation.
