Summary
This book is an up-to-date reference on all aspects of anticoagulation and hemostasis in neurosurgery. After an opening section on basic principles and drug classes in current use, detailed consideration is given to coagulation issues relevant to all patients, not just neurosurgical ones. The coverage includes, for example, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. A variety of important issues specific to neurosurgical practice are then addressed, and the book concludes with a summary of current guidelines and best practices. As the population ages and prophylactic anticoagulation for different cardiac disorders is validated by cooperative trials, it is becoming ever more important that practicing neurosurgeons have the requisite knowledge to manage optimally the opposing processes of anticoagulation and hemostasis. Nevertheless, only a modest amount of structured information is at present available on the subject, with the consequence that decision making is too often insufficiently informed. This book, written by recognized experts, is designed to rectify this situation by bringing together the latest knowledge from across the entire discipline. It will be of daily value for neurosurgeons and trainees worldwide and will also be of interest to emergency room physicians, surgeons in general, critical care physicians, neurologists, and hospital medicine specialists
