The blood clot is only a temporary solution to stop bleeding; vessel repair is therefore needed. The aggregated platelets help this process by secreting chemicals that promote the invasion of

fibroblastsfrom surrounding connective tissue into the wounded area to completely heal the wound or form a scar.
