Hans Larsen has delighted us again with this elegant and provocative book on the mechanisms of
thrombosis and stroke. He is able to explain the intricate mechanisms involved in the underlying
causes of thrombosis leading to strokes, then he provides us the clinical tests for each of these
entities, and then offers a rational preventive means to alter this process. This book is a rich
document replete with abundant references and will have a profound and enduring impact on patients
attempting to understand and modify their risks for thrombosis and stroke, especially those with lone
atrial fibrillation. Highly recommended, and a necessary supplemental companion for Hans Larsen's
Lone Atrial Fibrillation: Towards A Cure.
"Hans Larsen's new book Thrombosis and Stroke Prevention is extremely valuable for
those of us with atrial fibrillation and for all adults. Hans clearly explains the body's pathways to
form blood clots and to dissolve them, the medications in common use to affect these processes,
and the natural alternatives that can be used to help prevent stroke. His analysis will also help to
prevent heart attack and blood clots in the lungs. Read this book; it may save your life!"
Never before has so much stroke-prevention information been consolidated into one complete,
concise, well-referenced, well-researched and very important publication. This book is not just for
afibbers, but for all health-conscious individuals looking to avoid blood clots and stroke by
understanding who is at risk, how clots form and how to prevent them. The author takes a complex
topic and breaks it down into understandable and useful anti-clotting strategies that include a
thorough examination of natural alternatives as well as prescription drugs. This is a "must-have"
reference everyone needs to own and read.
