Hemostasis and Thrombosis: Practical Guidelines in Clinical Management is a hugely important, changing and complex area that impacts many other medical specialties and affects at least 10 million people in the United States alone. It is vital for physicians and other healthcare professionals to recognize abnormalities of hemostasis and thrombosis and be able to address these problems in their patients.
This text covers all aspect of the practical management of commonly encountered thrombotic and bleeding disorders, with emphasis on clinical diagnosis, treatment and day-to-day management. The most clinically relevant material including discussions of new and upcoming diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for thrombotic and bleeding disorders has been included in this text.
