Hemostasis and thrombosis is a hugely important, changing and complex area that impacts many other medical specialties, affecting at least 10 million people in the United States alone. It is vital for physicians to recognize abnormalities of hemostasis and thrombosis and to be able to address these problems in their patients.

Hemostasis and Thrombosis: Practical Guidelines in Clinical Managementcovers all aspects 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 from the literature has been carefully compiled, along with:

 - Discussions of new and upcoming diagnostic and therapeutic modalities

- Practical clinical advice for all those dealing with coagulation, hemostasis and thrombosis

Written by world leading specialists contributing their expertise in succinct text and focusing on the latest clinical guidance, Hemostasis and Thrombosis: Practical Guidelines in Clinical Management will benefit hematologists in training and in practice working in the fields of coagulation, hemostasis and thrombosis.
