Dr. Peter Semple and Dr. Ralph Sacco illustrate, in full color, the physiological mechanisms and many manifestations of stroke. They include diagnostic information and the broad range of therapeutic options now available for successful management of the disease. The book contains many MRI, X-ray, and other scans as well as a large number of pathological and histopathological examples demonstrating the full impact of the disease. The text provides the author's clinical insights and the detailed explanatory captions cover epidemiology, classification, neuronal ischemia and the ischemic penumbra, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), cardioembolism, lacunar strokes, intracerebral hemorrhage, vascular causes of dementia, and stroke prevention.
