Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Thrombosis, defined as the formation of blood clots within the vasculature leading to complete or partial obstruction to blood flow in the vessel, is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the developed world. It can be both arterial and venous and encompasses a wide variety of diagnoses including the more common myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, acute limb ischemia, deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism to the rare anti-phospholipid syndrome and heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis. The incidence and prevalence of thrombosis depend on whether it is arterial or venous. Both forms of thrombosis are associated with poor prognosis with long-term sequelae contributing significantly to the healthcare burden.

The pathophysiology of arterial and venous thrombosis is different and management requires a thorough understanding of the underlying pathophysiology and the location of the thrombus (arterial or venous). Over the years treatment strategies for the management of thrombosis have changed significantly, especially with the advent of newer drugs. While antiplatelet agents are the first choice of drugs for the management of arterial thrombosis, vitamin K antagonists and direct oral anticoagulants are preferred for venous thrombosis. Also, adjunct therapies such as catheter-directed thrombolysis, thrombectomy, and stenting have shown to be efficacious in certain clinical settings.

The topic of ‘Thrombosis’ will be explored further in this special issue of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine. We sincerely invite our esteemed colleagues to submit original articles and reviews on the topic “Thrombosis: Clinical Diagnosis and Treatment” with special emphasis on pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment strategies, including novel therapies. We believe this issue will help provide practicing clinicians and clinicians-in-training a detailed synopsis of the management of various disorders associated with thrombosis and also form a suitable framework for further research in this field.
