A major unique feature of strokes is their acuteness with the necessity of rapid decision analysis concerning diagnosis and treatment. The last decade has seen major advances in diagnostic technology available to clinicians and development of a larger therapeutic armamentarium. These rapid changes have made it difficult for non-stroke specialists to keep up. Stroke provides a timely and user-friendly manual, covering common and important topics in the diagnosis and treatment of stroke, which clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients on the ward or in the clinic. The discussions are case-based, concise, and easily-digested, thereby providing the reader with an overview of the approach to the problem in question.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this introductory book that covers a broad array of cerebrovascular disorders edited by Dr. Louis Caplan, the readers will glean much practical information....The 26 chapters were written by authors with a range of clinical experience but the overriding expertise and vast clinical experience provided by Dr. Caplan is evident in all of them. The topics covered by these chapters range from the common to the relatively esoteric, but encompass the great majority of clinical problems seen by busy clinicians. This introductory case-based book should provide an excellent first exposure to the field of cerebrovascular disease for medical students, residents and early stage practitioners that will hopefully inspire them to delve more deeply into this rapidly expanding and increasingly exciting area of clinical medicine."
-Marc Fisher, MD, Professor of Neurology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Boston, MA


"No patient is average. Lou Caplan makes the point eloquently with 26 well described and discussed cases. He arrives at the key points and references with the perspective and wisdom of a master practitioner of the art and science of stroke. I highly recommended it."
-Vladimir Hachinski, MD, FRCPC, DSc, Distinguished University Professor, University of Western Ontario, University Hospital, London, Ontario, Canada


"This book fits particularly well into the "What Do I Do Now?" series as each stroke case is different. The chapters are well organized, beginning with clinical scenarios and ending with key points. This is a surprisingly easy-to-read, introductory book on stroke." --Doody's
