Transient Ischemic Attack and Stroke

Diagnosis, Investigation and Management

by Sarah T. Pendlebury, Matthew F. Giles,

Accurate diagnosis, appropriate investigation, reliable risk stratification, and urgent treatment are essential after TIA and minor stroke and can reduce the risk of stroke recurrence by up to 80%. This book reviews recent developments in each of these areas. To reflect the fact that TIAs and minor strokes are simply one end of the clinical spectrum of cerebrovascular disease, the book also covers the management of major stroke, and long-term outcomes - such as cognitive impairment - which can complicate all types of cerebrovascular events. The book is therefore a comprehensive primer in stroke medicine. Written by a leading team of researchers in the field, this book will be of interest to neurologists, stroke physicians, and all others with an interest in stroke.
