Summary : Most strokes are attributed to atherosclerosis of neck and intracranial arteries, brain embolism from the heart, and penetrating artery disease; these are discussed in detail in many other books. This compendium fills an important niche by providing authoritative discussions on the other, less common causes of stroke, including various forms of angiitis, coagulation disorders, infective, paraneoplastic and metabolic disorders that may be associated with stroke, and a number of rare syndromes such as Eales disease and Fabry's disease. This new edition contains detailed, up-to-date information about the nature, diagnosis, and treatment of those relatively uncommon types of cerebrovascular disease that cause strokes. It is therefore a unique scientific and clinical resource that provides a useful reference to help physicians diagnose and treat stroke patients who do not fit well into the usual clinical categories. New chapters include stroke in patients with Lyme disease, scleroderma, Cogan's syndrome, Chagas' disease, and HIV.

Summary : "When Charles Miller Fisher was born in 1913 there was little scientific knowledge about brain diseases and their treatment. Stroke, one of the most common and most feared among brain conditions, did an almost complete flip/flop during the 20th century. At the midpoint of the century, when Fisher began his career, there was little public or medical interest in stroke. By the end of the century stroke care and research was among the most intensely active areas within all of medicine. This book is the story of that change and of one physician, Dr. C. Miller Fisher, a main architect and driver of that change"--

Summary : A practical textbook, based on a problem-oriented workflow, that will improve patients' likelihood of full recovery from stroke and prevent future strokes from occurring Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and is in the top five causes of death globally. Warlow's Stroke: Practical Management, 4th Edition takes a problem-oriented approach and addresses the questions posed by a stroke patient in the order they are likely to present in clinical practice, for instance, 'Is it a stroke?', 'What sort of stroke?', 'What caused it?', and 'What can be done about it?'. Beginning with chapters phrased as questions, the book walks the reader through a standard clinical workflow, exploring the practical skills and assessment required at each stage of patient management. Early chapters cover: locating the vascular lesion, identifying the involved arterial territory, the role imaging should play, and the application thereof. Subsequent chapters look at what causes a transient or persistent ischemic event, an intracerebral hemorrhage and a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Unusual causes of ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack are also covered. The book then presents a practical approach to the management of stroke and transient ischemic attack; offers specific treatments for acute ischemic stroke and aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage; provides ways for professionals to prevent first or recurrent stroke; and more. Final chapters of the book discuss rehabilitation after stroke, how patients and carers can be supported in the short term and long term, prevention of recurrent stroke, and the organization of stroke services. Warlow's Stroke: Practical Management, 4th Edition Follows clinical workflow for stroke analysis Features evidence-based approach throughout Offers practical application aimed at improving patient outcomes Written and edited by internationally renowned experts in the field An essential resource for all practitioners involved in the care of patients who suffer from cerebrovascular disease, but particularly suitable for neurologists, residents, geriatricians, stroke physicians, radiologists and primary care physicians.

Summary : A 65-year-old patient arrives at the Emergency Department with stroke symptoms that began 45 minutes ago. You are called STAT! Acute stroke management has changed dramatically in recent years. Tremendous advances have been made in acute treatments, diagnostic neuroimaging, and organized systems of care, and are enabling better outcomes for patients. Stroke has evolved from a largely untreatable condition in the acute phase to a true medical emergency that is potentially treatable—and sometimes curable. The Code Stroke emergency response refers to a coordinated team-based approach to stroke patient care that requires rapid and accurate assessment, diagnosis, and treatment in an effort to save the brain and minimize permanent damage. The Code Stroke Handbook contains the "essentials" of acute stroke to help clinicians provide best practice patient care. Designed to assist frontline physicians, nurses, paramedics, and medical learners at different levels of training, this book highlights clinical pearls and pitfalls, guideline recommendations, and other high-yield information not readily available in standard textbooks. It is filled with practical tips to prepare you for the next stroke emergency and reduce the anxiety you may feel when the Code Stroke pager rings. An easy-to-read, practical, clinical resource spread over 12 chapters covering the basics of code stroke consultations: history-taking, stroke mimics, neurological examination, acute stroke imaging (non-contrast CT/CT angiography/CT perfusion), and treatment (thrombolysis and endovascular therapy) Includes clinical pearls and pitfalls, neuroanatomy diagrams, and stroke syndromes, presented in an easily digestible format and book size that is convenient to carry around for quick reference when on-call at the hospital Provides foundational knowledge for medical students and residents before starting your neurology, emergency medicine, or internal medicine rotations

Summary : The Effective Clinical Neurologist presents the most systematic guide available for the doctor or medical student learning the art of the neurological examination and treatment. The patient-centred method is presented in logical steps, walking the reader through the process in a clear and detailed, yet personal style. The authors begin by placing neurological medicine in its current cultural and economic environment and progress to presenting the specific process of interacting with the patient. This book is the only guide to the art of achieving optimal doctor-patient interaction and communication, which are essential to the practicing neurologist. The third edition of this classic reference is fully updated to include the impact of electronic communication and to incorporate the many technological advances that can be applied to the neurological evaluation. Other changes in the environment in which the clinician practices include the changes in procedure brought about by managed care. This edition is organized into four parts, beginning with a section on the clinician-neurologist and the scope, methods, and uniqueness of this area of medicine. Part II focuses on the patient encounter - the taking of a history, systemic and neurological examination, interpretation of tests, giving the patient information, and conducting the "dismissal interview". Case examples illustrate the methods discussed. Part III presents the various types of encounters that occur, including those that involve inpatient care, outpatient care, consultations, and the inclusion of medical students and other trainees. Medico-legal aspects of neurological care are also presented. Part IV concludes with a summing up of the approach to patient care that is presented in the book and offers 10 Commandments of Doctoring.
