Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Cathy M. Helgason, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book contains the proceedings of the 20th Princeton Conference on Cerebrovascular Disease held in Memphis in March, 1996.
Purpose: The purpose is to enshrine the proceedings for posterity, a worthy goal. The book focuses on research and therapy of cerebrovascular disease and is a compilation of presentation-based papers on thrombosis, advances in neuroimaging, pathways of cell death, protective and restorative mechanisms, and therapy for stroke and brain ischemic injury.
Audience: The book is intended for all whose interest is in current advances in research of cerebrovascular disease.
Features: Unique to this book is the combined presentation of clinical and basic science research issues. It is judiciously illustrated and the references are current and pertinent. The size of the book is such that it can be read easily at a desk top or in a comfortable arm chair.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to any library shelf on stroke; in fact, such a shelf would be incomplete without it.
