Haemostasis plays an integral role in arterial thrombotic disease. However, establishing which of the factors are risk factors has proven surprisingly difficult. Because of its technical simplicity and digital nature, the study of haemostatic polymorphisms as risk factors has grown in popularity. Once established as a risk factor, a genetic polymorphism has the potential to aid selective prophylaxis and therapy of disease. Numerous reports have now been published on polymorphisms of coagulation… CONTINUE READING
