Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is associated with high morbidity and mortality both in and out of the hospital setting, and is one of the commonest reasons for hospital attendances and admissions.

Experts in fields such as the radiological diagnosis of pulmonary embolism and thrombophilia testing, give a succinct summary of the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of venous thromboembolism and include evidence-based guidelines.

With contributions from a team on internationally recognized experts, Handbook of Venous Thromboembolism is a source of information that specialists in the field can recommend to non-specialists and which the latter will be able to review to assist in their education and management of this wide-spread condition.
