About the Authors
  • The second edition of Transient Ischemic Attack and Stroke covers the clinical background and management of the full clinical spectrum of cerebrovascular disease, from TIA to vascular dementia, in a compact, but evidence-based format making a comprehensive primer in stroke medicine. Accurate diagnosis and appropriate investigation and management have a major impact on patient outcomes in cerebrovascular disease, such as the effect of urgent antithrombotic treatment on early recurrent stroke after TIA and minor stroke, the effect of interventions such as thrombectomy and hemicraniectomy in major acute stroke, and the effect of stroke units and organised stroke care. Written by a leading team of clinicians and researchers in the field, this book will be essential to neurologists, geriatricians, stroke physicians, allied health workers and all others with an interest in stroke.

    • A portable yet comprehensive 'handbook' that can be used as a practical reference text during everyday practice
    • Covers recent research, clinical trials, and clinical guidelines in TIA and stroke medicine succinctly, offering an evidence-based primer on the subject
    • Uniquely offers comprehensive information on the epidemiology and management on minor acute cerebrovascular events
