Stroke and TIAs are often neglected illnesses. They are a major cause of death and disability, and must be treated as an emergency. Managing Strokes and TIAs in Practice is a practical guide for the busy clinician, particularly important in the treatment of patients and in the secondary prevention of stroke. Describing epidemiology and the pathophysiology of stroke, this authoritative guide details stroke risk factors, primary and secondary prevention strategies and gives advice on how to manage a patient in the acute phase. Data from clinical trials are also included, giving current information on therapies and drug treatment.
Managing Strokes and TIAs in Practice will be of great value to general practitioners, hospital doctors, nurses, pharmacists and all members of the multidisciplinary team.
