Comprehensive and up-to-date information on thrombosis. Thrombosis is the formation of a solid blood clot in an arterial or venous vessel where it can interfere with normal blood flow. About 1 in 20 people suffers from vein clots or lung clots in their lifetime. Nearly half of those suffering from thrombosis have other illnesses such as cancer or develop the clot while recovering from surgery or a serious accident. While most episodes of blood clotting are not dangerous, some can be serious, even fatal. In this book, Dr. Jack Hirsh discusses a number of important issues regarding this disease, including: - Causes of thrombosis - Prevention of blood clotting in the arteries and veins - Diagnosis and treatment of immediate and continuous blood clotting - A comprehensive review of new and current drug therapies - Explanation of the latest surgical procedures - Advice on managing day-to-day life
