The venous thrombosis care and profession has evolved considerably over the past 20 years. This book reflects the current practice, both technical and professional, of physicians from different fields. Venous thromboembolism became treatable with the discovery of heparin at the beginning of the 20th century. The presence of an effective therapy increased the importance of diagnosing venous thromboembolism, fueling a plethora of medical research and technological developments over the next century. Despite the advances made, venous thromboembolism remains an elusive entity because of its atypical presentations and associated diagnostic challenges.
This book is a fresh synthesis of venous thromboembolism care and considers the opinions and studies from different fields of medicine. As venous thrombosis spectrum is wide and can affect many organ systems, from deep veins of the leg to the cerebral venous system, our intent is for this to be a comprehensive, up-to-date and readable book. Section 1 covers the etiology of venous thrombosis and specific disease conditions that are largely associated with venous thrombosis. Section 2 is a review of the current catheter-based therapy and late complications of the venous thrombosis.
Section 3 covers all aspects of assessment of the patients with cerebral venous thrombosis and venous thrombosis of the eye. Section 4 focuses on venous thrombosis in general surgery patients and catheter-related venous thrombosis in cancer patients. Section 5 covers special issues about venous thrombosis, clinical experiences and perspectives of the authors about the special topics.
We sought the best contributing authors to write these chapters. Many of them are not only experts in their assigned topics, but also have extensive teaching experience. We encouraged all contributors to present a new synthesis of the existing material infused with new ideas and perspectives, their own clinical studies and even case-reports. So, we present to you the fruits of our efforts. We all hope that this book will be a significant contribution to the scientific knowledge about venous thrombosis.
