First published in 1989: State-of-the-art information on the topic of clinical thrombosis, including an introductory portion dealing with the principles of hemostasis and the pathogenesis of thrombosis, is presented in this text. The use of thrombolytic therapy in acute myocardial infarction is discussed. Other significant advances, such as the identification and understanding of the risk factors contributing to thrombosis such as Protein C and S deficiency, lupus anticoagulants, immune heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, new diagnostic techniques and newer modalities of therapy, are described. Clinical and pathophysiologic features of thrombosis disorders and special situations involving multiple organs are covered. This book also clarifies and updates the usefulness of the various diagnostic techniques.
