Abstract

Risk Factors for Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke describes environmental and genetic determinants for cerebrovascular disease and stroke from the perspective of an international group of neurologists, epidemiologists, and geneticists who are at the forefront of research and education on these issues. Unlike other books in the field, which solely deal with physiology, diagnosis, and management of stroke, this essential book discusses prevention factors as well as the causes. This unique book takes a comprehensive approach to risk prediction while integrating epidemiological, genetic, and statistical principles explained in a way that is easy for the clinical trainee to understand. The section on genetic risk factors for various types of stroke is unique in its depth and up-to-date information. Clinicians, residents, fellows and academics in neurology, geriatrics, internal medicine, epidemiology, genetics, public health professionals, and preventative cardiologists, as well as nurses, practitioners and physician assistants will find this a handy source for years to come.
