This issue focuses on platelet disorders that are routinely encountered by practicing hematologists. Since there is a rapidly expanding body of information currently available in this discipline, we have assembled a wide variety of topics by experts in their respective fields.

For example, the chapter on assessment of platelet function covers standard assay methods as well as more advanced testing and point of care tests. Similarly, recent advances in the management of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) are discussed by authors who have performed original research in these areas.

Other interesting topics include anti-platelet drug therapy, drug-induced thrombocytopenia and current evidence-based platelet transfusion therapy. Apart from congenital and acquired platelet dysfunction, a chapter on hyperactive platelets is included because evidence is emerging that supports the hypothesis that increased platelet function can cause thrombotic disorder. It is our sincere hope that this compendium of articles will ease the burden of the practicing hematologist and simplify the task of treating patients with platelet disorders
