Circulatory and Lymphatic Systems Test 1 KAPLAN 3 Passage I (Questions 1–6) While the coagulation factors necessary to initiate clotting are always present in the blood, the formation of a clot in the intact vascular system is prevented by three properties of the vascular walls. First, the endothelial lining is smooth enough to prevent activation of the clotting system, which is sensitive to vascular damage. Second, the inner surface of the endothelium is covered by glycocalyx, a mucopolysaccharide that repels the clotting factors and platelets in the blood.
