Hemostasis: Coagulation and Platelet Testing in Veterinary Medicine

Assessment of hemostasis has exploded in the last decade with tests spanning evaluation of molecular components of individual cells or pathways, cellular structure and function, and global hemostasis. The editors of Veterinary Clinical Pathology are proud to offer this compilation of exciting work in the field of hemostasis published during the past 3 years in VCP and addressing a wide range of topics, including thrombelastography, TAFI, beta1-tubulin structure in platelets, assessment of platelet mass and reticulated platelets, and platelet function tests.
