Venous Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism

Michael Hume, Simon Sevitt, Duncan P. Thomas

ISBN 9780674933200

Publication date: 01/01/1970

This volume, representing the combined efforts of a surgeon, a pathologist, and an internist, is the first comprehensive survey of the subject in many years. Interpreting anatomic, experimental, and clinical data the authors present the subject as a single disease—venous thromboembolism—with pulmonary embolism as its most important complication. Incidence, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management have been dealt with throughout in a way that will acquaint the student with the fundamentals of the disease, the practitioner with current laboratory progress, and the research scientist with the most compelling unsolved problems in clinical management. A significant and lucidly written study, the monograph is thoroughly referenced and illustrated and includes a bibliography at the end of each chapter.
