This book provides a comprehensive clinical review of the diagnosis and treatment of patients with ischemic cerebrovascular disease. The book includes chapters on the clinical features of transient ischemic attacks and ischemic stroke, risk factors, and evaluations. Additional chapters discuss causes of stroke including atherosclerosis, cardioembolism, non-atherosclerotic vasculopathies, and pro-thrombotic disorders. The causes of stroke in children and young adults are highlighted. The final section of the book includes chapters on therapies to prevent stroke, acute stroke treatment, general management of the patient with recurrent stroke, and rehabilitation. The volume is heavily referenced with an emphasis on recent publications so that the reader can pursue additional information about a topic. It also includes several tables and algorithms that should aid the clinician treating patients with cerebrovascular disease.

Industry Reviews

"This concise, authoritative textbook is strongly recommended to physicians who wish to optimize the care of patients with stroke."--New England Journal of Medicine, May 2002 "...an excellent textbook for neurologists, neurosurgeons, pediatricians, cardiologists, internists, and general physicians who deal with the diagnosis and management of strokes...strongly recommended"--New England Journal of Medicine, May 2002 "Overall, the authors succeeded very well in condensing a huge amount of information into a hands-on textbook in a rather comprehensive yet still personal way. We recommend it as a basic reference for any (busy or not busy) physician taking care of stroke patients."--European Neurology, Vol. 49, No 3, 2003
