About the Authors
  • Toole's Cerebrovascular Disorders was the first modern book devoted to care of the stroke, originally published more than 40 years ago. This is a completely revised and updated sixth edition of the highly respected standard for stroke diagnosis and treatment. Dr James Toole has stayed on as a consultant for the text, and Drs E. Steve Roach, Kerstin Bettermann, and Jose Biller have reworked Dr Toole's book to include chapters on genetics, pregnancy-related stroke, and acute treatments. The practical focus of the book has not changed, retaining its emphasis on bedside diagnosis and treatment. Easily accessible both for stroke specialists and residents, the sixth edition has been modernized to keep pace with the rapid expansion of knowledge in stroke care and includes evidence-based recommendations, the latest technology and imaging, and risk factors. The text is supplemented with more than 200 images, many in color.

    • Features full color pathological and neuroimaging studies of cerebrovascular disorders to enhance understanding
    • Discusses all cerebrovascular diseases
    • Written in a logical, easily readable fashion

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… comprehensive, clearly written, and beautifully illustrated … This text provides an excellent overall reference for any physician who cares for people of any age with stroke. The clarity and organization make it accessible to the general practitioner as well as the neurologist and neurology subspecialist.' Journal of Child Neurology

    'I found the chapters on inflammatory angiopathies, hematological disorders and moyamoya particularly useful in cataloguing less common causes of stroke and thus promoting the occasional recognition of an unusual cause of stroke with distinct approaches to treatment … I think that this is a very useful introductory text and handy reference, especially when rare causes of stroke are encountered.' Archives of Neurology
