Transient Ischemic Attack and Stroke: Diagnosis, Investigations and Treatment (2nd Edition) by Gary Lau, Sarah Pendlebury and Peter Rothwell (Cambridge University Press 2018)
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. This book will be essential to neurologists, geriatricians, stroke physicians, allied health workers and all others with an interest in stroke.
