About this book

Coagulation in Cancer informs medical professionals working in the field of cancer of the pathophysiologic mechanisms of cancer-related thrombosis and bleeding. It provides assistance in recognizing the various bleeding and clotting disorders associated with cancer and includes current recommendations for the management of hemorrhage, and prevention and treatment of thrombosis in the patient with malignancy.

This volume is a valuable addition to the literature on cancer and coagulation.

"The complex interface between cancer and hemostasis is the focus of this extraordinary text. Distinguished figures in the field dissect the effect of cancer on coagulation and coagulation on cancer. A broad spectrum of topics are covered exploring mechanistic issues and problems of clinical relevance."

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This comprehensive book, Coagulation in Cancer, edited by David Green and Hau C. Kwaan is a much needed compilation of recent studies and current concepts of the subject. … Many will appreciate the chapters emphasizing the high probability of thromboembolism and bleeding and myeloproliferative disorders. … Clinicians and research investigators … will appreciate the large number of pertinent references to be found in the bibliographies of these articles." (Harry L Messmore and William H Wehrmacher, Clinical and Applied Thrombosis, June, 2009)
