Abstract

The hemostatic pathways involve a complex interplay of a vast array of inherited and acquired factors. Derangements of these pathways lead to several disorders that are complex and challenging not just for laboratory and clinical hematologists but also of concern to public health officials and policy makers. The past decade has seen an increased focus on research in this area with several recent meetings focusing on the diagnosis and management of persons afflicted with these disorders. Haematocon 2018 is the national conference of the Indian Society of Haematology and Blood Transfusion, and papers presented at this year’s event offered a glimpse of the contemporary research efforts in India. This mini-review summarizes and places in perspective, salient results from this meeting. The papers are divided into broad subsections of hemophilia, rare clotting factor deficiencies, platelet function defects, macrothrombocytopenia syndromes, thromboelastography, inherited and acquired prothrombotic states, and finally a miscellaneous section. Relevant recent Indian publications on the theme are also discussed.
