The objective of this chapter is to highlight problems of hemostasis and thrombosis in regards to renal disease. The topics included are bleeding in renal disease, renal vein thrombosis, nephrotic syndrome/hypercoagulability, graft loss due to thromobosis/thrombophilias, and dose adjustment of anticoagulants in renal insufficiency. The clinical, etiologic, and treatment aspects are addressed for the first four topics and anticoagulants are discussed by degree of renal insufficiency for the final topic. © 2009 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
