About the Authors
  • A rapid increase in our understanding of the biology of platelets and their role in disease in recent years has been paralleled by increasing successes with established platelet-modifying therapies in many clinical conditions. This text focuses on the clinical role of platelets in a wide variety of hematologic, cardiovascular and other disorders, providing a practical, clinically relevant handbook for all clinicians and researchers interested in platelets and their role in disease. Covering platelet physiology, bleeding disorders, thrombotic disorders and antithrombotic therapy. Chapters cover all the conventional and less conventional aspects of platelet involvement in disease, with an emphasis on recent clinical developments. Clear take home messages have been included in each chapter to aid clinical practice. With contributions from leading experts across three continents, Platelets in Hematologic and Cardiovascular Disorders is an up-to-date, well illustrated, practical resource for everyone involved in clinical practice with platelet disorders.

    • Covers all aspects of the involvement of platelets in disease, split into four main sections; platelet physiology, bleeding disorders, thrombotic disorders and antithrombotic therapy
    • Key information is summarized at the end of each chapter for quick reference
    • Illustrated with simple diagrams of key concepts, in colour throughout

    Reviews & endorsements

    "A comprehensive clinical handbook...Each aspect of the platelet is covered in detail by leading experts in the field...The first 19 chapters contain a good mix of basic science and clinical medicine...The last seven chapters of the book cover [the development of antiplatelet drugs] in great detail. Tables and graphs summarizing the main clinical trials of antiplatelet therapy complement the information and recommendations presented in these treatment-oriented chapters...I enjoyed reading this book and believe that it will be a useful guide for residents, graduate students, physicians, and scientists."
    --New England Journal of Medicine
