Thromboembolism Affects A large number of organs and tissues, and its ubiquitous nature renders the disease a difficult but fascinating challenge. Dr. Wu and colleagues have compiled an admirable book encompassing virtually the entire spectrum of thromboembolic disorders.
The sections on physiology and pathophysiology are excellent, and constitute the greatest strength of this book. The authors provide a complete and up-to-date description of the coagulation and fibrinolytic systems and their roles in physiologic and pathologic states, along with an interesting but somewhat overly technical description of blood rheology. The discussions of platelet function, coagulation cascade, and fibrinolysis are particularly noteworthy
