Common Pitfalls in Cerebrovascular Disease : Case-Based Learning Paperback / softback

Edited by Dr. Jose Biller, Jose M., MD, Ph.D. (Universidade de Lisboa) Ferro


Clinical case studies have long been recognized as a useful adjunct to problem-based learning and continuing professional development.

They emphasize the need for clinical reasoning, integrative thinking, problem-solving, communication, teamwork and self-directed learning - all desirable generic skills for health care professionals.

This book is a teaching tool that bridges the gap between textbook information and everyday experience of clinicians 'in the trenches'.

Leading practitioners bring a practical approach to these complex conditions, highlighting specific areas of diagnostic uncertainty in evaluation and treatment.

Each case is taken from real-world clinical practice and reviews the diagnostic and treatment process in a systematic manner, identifying common challenges and potential pitfalls.

This concise and useful guide in the Common Pitfalls series provides a step-by-step guide for everyday clinical practice, invaluable to anyone dealing with cerebrovascular disease on a front-line basis.

The intended readership is trainees and non-specialist practitioners in neurology, stroke medicine, and neurosurgery.
