Book review: Oral anticoagulants

After the 3rd volume devoted to parental anticoagulants, it stands to reason that the Clinical Development Department had to turn its attention to the other side of anticoagulant treatment – the oral anticoagulants – in this series launched in 2014 with the objective of publishing a Practical Manual every year.
The aim of the series is to provide health professionals with clear and comprehensive medical and scientific information relating to their everyday practice in the broad field of hemostasis. Each volume brings together a panel of international experts, each of whom produces a section specific to her/his own area of expertise and investigation.
This volume, devoted to oral anticoagulants, focuses on Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOAC) – called New Oral Anticoagulants (NACO in French) – without neglecting the anti-vitamin K (AVK) drugs. The pharmacology, clinical aspects and biological monitoring of each treatment, AVK, anti-Xa and anti-IIa are described in a systematic manner, whilst information about the management and risks associated with these treatments, especially in certain diseases, is also discussed. A final section is devoted to antidotes in the event of complications and bleeding (reversal of anticoagulant effect). Twelve renowned international authors from Europe and North America were involved in the compilation of this book, coordinated by Stago.
Presented in July 2017 at the latest Congress of the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH 2017 – Berlin), this 4th opus was extremely well received and all 350 copies available on the Stago booth had gone in just 2 days!
Principally intended for clinicians and pathologists, but also for students and care providers interested in advances in the field of hemostasis and thrombosis, the 4 volumes in the series – of which more than 20,000 copies in all have already been distributed – are available on request to Stago.
