This is an updated new edition of the medical community's definitive color atlas-textbook of stroke, covering its myriad manifestations, diagnosis, and therapy. Now including Dr. Ralph L. Sacco as co-author with Dr. Peter F. Semple, and a new foreword by Dr. Justin A. Zivin, this second edition superbly illustrates, in full color, the physiological mechanisms and many manifestations of stroke along with diagnostic information and the broad range of therapeutic options now available for successful management of the disease. The book contains many MRI, X-ray, and other scans as well as a large number of pathological and histopathological examples demonstrating the full impact of the disease. The text includes an up-to-date review of stroke as well as the author's clinical insights and detailed explanatory captions accompanying high-quality color plates covering epidemiology, classification, neuronal ischemia and the ischemic penumbra, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), cardioembolism, lacunar strokes, intracerebral hemorrhage, vascular causes of dementia, and stroke prevention. Includes bibliographic references and index.
