Abstract

Part of the “What Do I Do Now?” series, Cerebrovascular Disease uses a case-based approach to cover common and important topics in the examination, investigation, and management of stroke, embolism, thrombosis, hemorrhage, and other critical presentations of cerebrovascular disease. Each chapter provides a discussion of the diagnosis, key points to remember, and selected references for further reading. For this edition, all cases and references have been updated and new cases have been added, including the following: ischemic stroke in cancer, posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), primary angiitis of the central nervous system, symptomatic spinal vascular malformation, and vascular dementia. Cerebrovascular Disease is an engaging collection of thought-provoking cases that clinicians can utilize when they encounter difficult patients. The volume is also a self-assessment tool that tests the reader’s ability to answer the question, “What do I do now?”
