I am thinking how clot retraction and fibrinolysis work together. I think that clot retraction is a process that gets clot towards fibrinolysis process. Fibrinolysis process then lyses the clot. However, I am not sure if it is so simple.
Some seems to be discussing about how to differentiate start of fibrinolysis from clot retraction morphologically. So they probably seem to be at this stage similar processes visually, but not functionally.
What is the function of clot retraction?
