Thrombosis plays a central role in the pathogenesis of the acute coronary syndromes, ischemic complication of percutaneous coronary intervention, and venous thrombomebolic disease. In this text, the editors (of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio and St. Joseph's Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky) present 13 chapters exploring antithrombotic therapies. The first eight chapters describe the pharmacology and clinical utility of common antiplatelet, antithrombin, and fibrinolytic agents, including aspirin, the thieneopyridines, glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors, unfractionated heparin, the low-molecular weight heparins, and direct thrombin inhibitors. Later chapters discus the contemporary management of acute coronary and venous thromboembolic disesase and include examination of ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction, non-ST- segment-elevation myocardial infarction, and percutaneous coronary interventions. The final chapter is dedicated to examination of the complication of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia.
