The present publication is the second, completely revised and updated edition of a handbook presenting the main practical knowledge on specific management strategies for stroke prevention in general practice. The issues discussed are presented in a question and answer model that not only makes it simple and very attractive to use but also emphasises consensus and controversies, whenever/wherever present. General practitioners and all physicians dealing with stroke patients will find this manual of great value as it answers the most important questions and covers a wide range of topics around stroke prevention: beginning with an introduction to the management of stroke and a comprehensive review of the nature and benefit of dedicated stroke units, themes such as stroke treatment options, primary and secondary prevention, epidemiology of stroke and the role of carotid surgery are also covered. Apart from information on different types of stroke, their early warning symptoms, risk factors and consequences, the reader will also find tests to help with the diagnosis of stroke.
