In1983 Dr Graham Hughes (one of the editors) described a syndrome in which the blood has a tendency to clot - now often called "sticky blood syndrome" or Hughes Syndrome.
Hughes Syndrome addresses the complete range of conditions produced by this common disorder which is also known as antiphospholipid Syndrome.
Hughes Syndrome is at the root of diverse conditions such as stroke, leg vein thrombosis and recurrent abortion. It is easily prevented and treated using commonly available drugs including low-dose aspirin. This book fulfils the need for a cross-disciplinary clinical textbook and contains contributions from the leading international authorities.
