Introduction

Despite remarkable progress in fighting against myocardial infarction, the thrombotic complications of the coronary artery are still a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Treatment options for arterial thrombosis include either relatively old drugs such as streptokinase, and newer agents that are either approved by the FDA or still undergoing clinical trials. These options make some room for questions that lead to a conclusion for the best combination of drugs for treating patients with acute coronary syndromes.

The handbook combines available information from basic hematology, cardiology and clinical trials and presents practical bed-side solutions for clinicians working with patients suffering from acute coronary syndromes. Readers will learn about the pathogenesis and diagnosis of thrombosis, thrombogenesis and fibrinolysis. Newer antithrombotic agents, cardiac diseases, venous thromboembolism are also covered. Health professionals will have quick access to relevant and organized information which also includes visual and tabular guides as well as some recommendations from professional societies.
