    I've written a brief account of thrombosis below and highlighted where calcium may be involved:

    Platelets and damaged cells release thromboplastin which attracts more platelets to the area. Platelets become activated by undergoing a cascade of reactions. Next, thromboplastin is an enzyme which catalyses the production of thrombin from prothrombin. Moreover, to make thrombin, calcium salts and vitamin K are needed. Next, thrombin catalyses the converstion of fibrinogen into fibrin which in turn traps red blood cells etc. to form a clot.
