Since publication of the First Edition in 1982, Hemostasis and Thrombosis has established itself as the pre-eminent book in the field of coagulation disorders. The text exhaustively details the essentials of bleeding disorders and the management of patients with these and related problems. This exhaustive resource delivers the most up-to-date information on normal biochemistry and function of platelets or endothelial cells, as well as in-depth discussions of the pharmacology of anticoagulant, fibrinolytic, or hemostatic drugs.
The fully revised Sixth Edition welcomes a new team of editors, each a leader in his field. Content on bleeding and thrombotic disorders is ordered by function for convenience and accessibility. New content on Hemostatic and Thrombotic Disorders Associated with Systemic Conditions includes material on pediatric patients, women's health issues, cancer, sickle cell disease, and other groups. A new Introduction addresses broad topics of general importance, and the book’s new full-color design includes full solution site and image bank.
