The Heart and stroke: exploring mutual cerebrovascular and cardiovascular issues
Heart and brain interaction is an increasingly vital area of clinical investigation. This is the most comprehensive review of the subject available, presented by internationally recognized authorities in the field. The book offers extensive coverage of cardioembolic stroke, including a brand new contribution on the mechanism of hemorrhagic infarction. Controversial topics such as anticoagulation, combined carotid and coronary surgery and screening for silent coronary disease are covered. Also included are a comprehensive review of the cardiovascular/neurobiological role of the central nervous system in hypertension and sudden death, and a practical approach to the patient with syncope. This integrated, topical presentation makes essential reading for neurologists, cardiologists, internists and anyone caring for patients with stroke or cardiac disease.
