Thrombosis and Cancer

Thrombosis and Cancer by Gilles Lugassy
Not available
It is common knowledge that thromboembolic disease is often the earliest manifestation and almost the most frequent complication of cancer. Recent studies have investigated the mechanisms by which cancer causes thrombosis and have emphasized the importance of the coagulation system in angiogenesis and tumor metastasis. Thrombosis and Cancer offers a detailed and authoritative review of the issues involved in the links between thrombosis, hemostasis, and cancer, an association long documented but still not completely understood.

This text provides comprehensive and timely coverage of the current knowledge of cancer-associated thrombosis, its pathogenesis, clinical features, prevention, and therapy. It specifically addresses the relationship between hemostatic systems and cancer, thus providing a unique and much needed focus. All of the contributors are acknowledged specialists in their fields and have experience conducting large clinical trials in oncology and thrombosis. Their discussions cover all aspects of the topic, from long-term complications to cancer surgery.

With input from specialists in a range of disciplines including hematology, pharmacology, and surgery, this thorough text will be of interest to general practitioners, internists, oncologists, hematologists, and all physicians involved in the management of cancer patients.
