Ischemic Stroke (Advances in Neurology, vol 92)

Arch Neurol. 2004;61(7):1147. doi:10.1001/archneur.61.7.1147

edited by H. J. M. Barnett, OC, MD, J. Bogousslavsky, MD, and H. Meldrum, BA, 467 pp, with illus, $169, ISBN 0-7817-3652-8, Philadelphia, Pa, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2003.

The latest volume in the Advances in Neurology series discusses the epidemiologic features, pathogenesis, medical and surgical treatment, and complications of ischemic stroke. The book is divided into 53 chapters and a useful index. Chapters are grouped into the following sections: "Epidemiology," "Arterial Lesions," "Clinico-Pathological Aspects of Specific Arterial Lesions," "Biochemistry," "Risk Factors," "Heart and Brain," "Brain and Heart," "Cerebral Venous and Sinus Disease," "Methodological Issues in Clinical Stroke Trials," "Medical and Surgical Preventions," "Treatment," and "Sequelae." The chapters are well written, informative, and surprisingly up-to-date with recent literature for a textbook.
