Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The editors have gathered 43 contributors to write a concise book on the management of acute stroke.
Purpose: The book is part of the Neurological Disease and Therapy series edited by William C. Koller. Like other volumes in the series, it seeks to offer concise advice on the modern management of neurological conditions.
Audience: This book is aimed at general internists and non-stroke specialists who care for stroke patients. It provides good solid advice about stroke management without the detail of larger dedicated stroke textbooks.
Features: The authors address primarily the management of acute ischemic stroke, although one chapter is aimed at intracerebral hemorrhage and another at subarachnoid hemorrhage. There are several innovative chapters at the beginning of the book on early recognition of stroke, management of stroke prior to the emergency room, and emergency room management of stroke. One chapter addresses stroke rehabilitation, but the bulk of the book details issues regarding medical and surgical management of ischemic stroke.
Assessment: This is a well written and readable book about acute stroke management. It can be read pleasurably in a few days' time. Although not encyclopedic in detail, it does offer clear and solid direction for the non-stroke specialist caring for stroke patients. The book should stimulate active and lively discussions between non-stroke specialists and their stroke specialist consultants..
Booknews
Twenty-six contributions provide an overview of recent advances in the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of acute stroke, for the many doctors who treat strokes, but who are not neurologists. Clinical management is the main focus, with emphasis on rapid assessment, neurological examination, use of laboratory tests, potential complications, and prevention of recurrences. Coverage also includes a policy perspective on acute stroke treatment, and discussion of stroke in populations of various ages, and treatment with aspirin and alternatives. Annotation c.
