Primer on Cerebrovascular Diseases, Second Edition, is a handy reference source for scientists, students, and physicians needing reliable, up-to-date information on basic mechanisms, physiology, pathophysiology, and medical issues related to brain vasculature. The book consists of short, specific chapters written by international experts on cerebral vasculature, presenting the information in a comprehensive and easily accessible manner. Numerous changes have occurred in the field since the publication of the first edition in 1997, particularly our understanding of the genetic aspects of cerebrovascular
"Since its publication in 1997, the Primer on Cerebrovascular Diseases has been an authoritative reference source for students, scientists, and clinicians needing rigorous summaries of molecular mechanisms, physiology, pathophysiology, and medical issues related to brain vasculature. In the Second Edition, Dr. Louis Caplan leads a new team of editors to completely revise and update this classic text. The new edition reflects wide-ranging advances made over the last two decades, and provides the mechanistic underpinnings for molecular understanding as well as clinical

Prevention, diagnosis and treatment are the watchwords in stroke research, for basic neuroscientists and clinicians alike. This 2002 book, from the 22nd Princeton Conference on Cerebrovascular Disease, contains contributions from outstanding investigators on numerous topics in stroke research. The contents cover the status and future directions of stroke pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment, with special emphasis on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of ischaemic cell death and repair, and clinical issues including imaging, risk factors and therapeutic strategies in stroke. Available in
Updated and revised, this new edition of Caplan’s Stroke continues to provide a concise and pragmatic approach to the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of adult and pediatric stroke patients. Dr. Caplan—a highly esteemed stroke authority— shares with you his vast experience and wisdom as a stroke clinician, including his time-tested strategies and unique clinical pearls that you can implement into your own practice. Expanded coverage of imaging and laboratory diagnosis and treatment as well as extensive revisions throughout,
Bryce Weir is a high-profile, respected neurologist. Dr. Macdonald is a colleague of Dr. Weir's and is a "rising star" in the field of neurology. This book is the first to cover all aspects of cerebral vasospasm in depth. It takes the reader from the first descriptions of this puzzling and deadly phenomenon to the latest laboratory evidence explaining its pathophysiology. Packed with clinical pearls, it is a must for neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists, neurologists, and neuropathologists. Key Features * Examines the

Stroke is a major health concern worldwide, and the epidemiological data is staggering. One in six people will have a stroke during the course of their life; it is the second most common cause of death; and stroke also ranks second among causes contributing to the global burden of disability. However, the burden of stroke can be alleviated: it is potentially preventable, treatable, and possible to manage long term. Despite continuing advances in our knowledge about this disease, there is
Cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States and many other countries, confers substantial risk for cerebrovascular events, such as stroke and vascular dementia. The neuropsychological sequelae of such conditions are well documented and can have a devastating impact on individuals' quality of life. However, prior to the development of overt cerebrovascular complications, persons with cardiovascular disease or its risk factors may display mild to severe neuropsychological difficulties. Medical and surgical treatments for cardiovascular disease
Covering every problem encountered in today’s intensive care unit, this leading critical care textbook presents the knowledge and expertise of more than 350 global experts in this fast-changing field. Beginning with the social aspects of medicine, it then discusses monitoring and organ system pathobiology followed by specific diseases states/syndromes. Each chapter begins with immediate concerns and proceeds to broader-based discussions of relevant pathophysiologic and clinical issues.
This market-leading guide covers all aspects of cerebrovascular disease, stroke syndromes, causes, prevention, evaluation and management.
New, exciting, and innovative advances in the field of cerebrovascular medicine continue to occur at a rapid pace. The fourth edition of Current Review of Cerebrovascular Disease provides an update on these rapidly evolving topics and a gives the reader insight into the thought-provoking issues in stroke neurology that have undergone tremendous changes during the past two years. The volume covers four main sections: basic science, diagnostics, clinical aspects, and treatment.
Sickle cell anaemia is an inherited blood disorder, characterised primarily by chronic anaemia and periodic episodes of pain and occurring in approximately 1 in every 400 African-American infants born in the United States each year. Individuals of Mediterranean, Arabian, Caribbean, South and Central American, and East Indian ancestry can also be affected. The underlying problem involves haemoglobin, a component of the red cells in the blood. The haemoglobin molecules in each red blood cell carry oxygen from the lungs to the body
This is a major revision of a standard reference work for neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, and neurologists. About one-half of the book contains entirely new work by new contributors. New topics not covered in the previous editions include consideration of common sources of neurocognitive morbidity, such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and exposure to heavy metals; psychiatric and behavioral disorders associated wtih traumatic brain injury; neuropsychology in relation to everyday functioning; the effects of cognitive impairment on driving skills, and adherence to medical
This book is designed for physicians in the ICU who need a straightforward, practical reference for management of critically ill neurological and neurosurgical patients.
