Hobbs FDR and Lip GYH. Antithrombotic Therapy. New drugs and management strategies - a handbook for clinicians, provides an overview to established and novel therapies for preventing and managing thromboembolic disorders.
The handbook provides a background to thrombosis and haemostasis, defines the ‘at-risk’ patient, and reviews the pharmacology of current and novel antithrombotic agents. Data and prescribing information are summarised for the novel anticoagulant agents in the settings of prevention and treatment of venous thromboembolism, stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation and secondary prevention in acute coronary syndrome.
Authored by leading experts in the field, this handbook will be an invaluable accessible resource for both primary and secondary care clinicians.
