Stroke, Paperback / softback Book


Stroke care has been revolutionised by better prevention, treatment, and more widely available rehabilitation.

Nonetheless, stroke remains the second most common cause of death worldwide.

This fully-updated new edition provides clear facts and practical advice as to why strokes occur and how they can be prevented in the future.

Concise in style but comprehensive in approach, Stroke: The Facts describes the myriad of symptoms, varied presentations, and longer-term consequences of this disabling condition. The journey from treatment through to rehabilitation and preventing a further stroke is made easy by the author, a stroke doctor and researcher involved in many of the studies that have advanced care.

Supplemented with case studies, this guide concentrates on developments in treatment, providing an important update on the first edition.

It is essential reading for those who have had a stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack and their families, and will also be of interest to medical professionals working within stroke care.
