Aspirin has been in clinical use for over 100 years, making it one of the oldest commonly used drugs in medicine, and is now predominantly used as an antiplatelet agent. Major new antiplatelet drug classes have recently become available for the clinician that offer the promise of major improvements in the treatment and prevention of arterial thrombotic disease. In the field of anticoagulation, the vitamin K antagonists such as warfarin have not been available for as long as aspirin in the antiplatelet field, and have also had very little in the way of competition until recently; although a number of parenteral anticoagulants have been available, the vitamin K antagonists have been the only orally active anticoagulant drugs. The last few years have seen the arrival of new drug classes, the orally active direct thrombin inhibitors and factor Xa antagonists, which offer a number of advantages, but not without important drawbacks.
In the face of these important advances in both antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy, clinicians often feel confused, even overwhelmed, as to what is now available and which drugs are useful (and indicated) in which circumstances. Antiplatelet and Anticoagulant Therapy is designed with such people in mind. It is written in an easy-to-follow format and with many illustrations to aid clarity and the assimilation of information. Each chapter is written by established authorities in their fields who are also experienced in explaining often complex concepts. The result is a unique book which is not only comprehensive but also clear and useful for the busy medical practitioner.Review:
From the reviews:
“This book is designed as an accessible, up-to date reference for clinicians using antiplatelet and anticoagulation therapy. The intended audience is the ‘busy clinician,’ but clearly the book is meant for those with regular exposure to patients with cardiovascular disease, acute coronary syndromes, and thromboembolic disease including emergency physicians, cardiologists, and primary care physicians. ... This book coincides with a relative explosion of new therapeutic options of antiplatelets and anticoagulants and is a useful addition to the literature.” (Don Allen Davis, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
