A clinically oriented handbook providing up-to-date recommendations for mastering the practical aspects of patient management for venous thromboembolism
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is associated with high morbidity and mortality both in and out of the hospital setting, and is one of the commonest reasons for hospital attendances and admissions. Designed as a practical resource, the Handbook of Venous Thromboembolism covers the practical aspects of venous thromboembolism management in short and easily followed algorithms and tables. This important text helps physicians keep up-to-date with the latest recommendations for treating venous thromboembolism in clinic-oriented settings. Experts in fields such as the radiological diagnosis of pulmonary embolism and thrombophilia testing, give a succinct summary of the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of venous thromboembolism and include evidence-based guidelines.
With contributions from a team on internationally recognized experts, Handbook of Venous Thromboembolism is a source of information that specialists in the field can recommend to non-specialists and which the latter will be able to review to assist in their education and management of this wide-spread condition. This vital resource:
This is edited, with 33 chapters. Good consistency in approach by various chapter authors. There is considerable redundancy of information, which is sometimes helpful when viewed by a different perspective, but sometimes more redundancy than appropriate. The field is in transition from use of vitamin K antagonists to use of newer oral anticoagulants, with abundant information on the former in the literature &, as yet, more limited information on the latter. This creates some problems for the authors, given that there are indications that the newer oral anticoagulants are advantageous, but the proof is not quite there yet. Some authors balance these, while other stick to the older agents.
This book is written for medical professionals, and would be hard to understand for readers without that background.
