About the Authors
  • Now in its third edition, this essential and detailed guide provides wide-ranging support for those diagnosing, treating and assessing complex types of cerebrovascular diseases, in a high pressure, time-constrained environment. Authored by leading clinicians in the field of neurology, and supported by advanced in brain-mapping technologies, this cutting-edge manual provides physicians, neurologists and emergency practitioners at all levels with a vital commentary on those relatively uncommon types of cerebrovascular disease that can lead to patients suffering a stroke. This new edition offers chapter-by-chapter imaging findings, evaluation and management advice, alongside insights into new topics such as CARASIL, sickle cell disease, radiation-induced cerebrovascular disease and blue rubber bleb syndrome. Updated and thorough, the guide provides a clear presentation on the nature, diagnosis, and treatment of everyday symptoms, through to more specialised cases. Building upon existing experience, practitioners can confidently assess patient needs, and correctly diagnose symptoms first time.

    • Includes up-to-date and niche research into complex causes of stroke
    • The most extensive and wide-ranging volume available on the topic
    • Authored by clinicians who have first-hand experience in diagnosing and assessing rare causes of stroke
    • A ready source of information
