This text provides a comprehensive practical guide to the understanding and management of thromboembolytic disease. Management of thrombosis, formerly the domain of the cardiologist or haemotologist, has become an increasingly significant issue in primary care and general practice, particularly as the range of therapies available has increased. With a uniform structure taking the reader through a background pathophysiology chapter, management strategies and drug administration, this text aims to provide a valuable guide to the general physician who lacks formal training in this area plus the trainee or pracitising cardiologist, haematologist and cardiovascular surgeon. Each chapter includes an introduction, background or pathophysiology when appropriate, and comprehensive coverage of management options. It also incorporates most therapies with exact dosing and administration schedules.
