Description: This study on venous circulation emphasizes the importance of venous obstruction, its pathogenesis, clinical features, and treatment.
Purpose: Cerebral venous thrombosis is often an unrecognized entity that may mimic a number of conditions, from migraine headache to coma. The fact that the symptoms may improve or even revert with the appropriate therapy makes its investigation and prompt diagnosis a worthy objective. This book meets them completely.
Audience: Although the book seems to be directed to neurology professionals, both residents and practitioners, it may also be of interest for neurosurgeons, internists (particularly ICU specialists), neuroradiologists, and even medical students interested in the subject. The authors have 20 years of experience in the field and should be considered credible.
Features: The accompanying bibliography is also complete and carefully chosen.
Assessment: The book is well presented and includes a good number of quality pictures and extensive neuroimaging illustrations. They are, nevertheless, circumscribed to the clinical and anatomical chapters of the book. The tables are complete and easy to understand. Even the book's small size is an asset.
