The text summarizes current knowledge of the hemostatic system, emphasizing the factors implicated in the disease, and examines the particular pathogenetic mechanisms involved in causation of venous thrombosis, both in specific sites and in association with various diseases and drugs. The heredity and acquired hemostatic component abnormalities associated with an increased predisposition to venous thrombosis are detailed, and methods showing potential value in the prediction of venous thrombosis are also discussed.
