Book description

This concise and informative textbook is aimed at trainee doctors beginning work on a stroke unit or residents embarking on their postdoctoral training in stroke care. It has a practical approach covering all important issues of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cerebrovascular diseases. Chapters on the basics of neuropathology and pathophysiology are followed by reviews of clinical issues, including neuroimaging, clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment, stroke in the young, and stroke-related dementia. Topics of rising importance are covered in chapters on stroke unit management, monitoring and management of complications including infections, recommendations for thrombolysis, interventions and neurosurgical procedures, and clear and balanced recommendations for secondary prevention. Finally, neuropsychological syndromes are explained and an up-to-date view on neurorehabilitation is presented. The authors are all experts in their field and many of them teach on the European Master's Program on Stroke Medicine, which is supported and endorsed by the European Stroke Organization.

Reviews

'… a simple and easy-to-consult text which includes the latest international recommendations. A chapter is dedicated to infections in stroke, usually neglected in other textbooks … the Textbook of Stroke Medicine offers practical information on stroke pathophysiology and clear diagnostic and treatment strategies.'
