Ischemic Stroke : Symptoms, Prevention & Recovery Hardback
Edited by Virag Lakatos, Balazs Somogyi
Ischemic stroke (IS) is due to the sudden occlusion of a cerebral artery with the consequence of a critical reduction in cerebral blood flow in a localized region of the brain.
It represents the second cause of death and the leading cause of neurological disability in developed countries.
In this book, the authors discuss the symptoms, prevention and recovery strategies for ischemic stroke.
Topics include the standard, current and new potential treatments of acute phase, prevention and rehabilitation of IS; ischemic stroke susceptibility gene research; the dual roles of inflammatory mediators in IS; modulation of protein kinase C isoforms as a potential treatment in IS; perioperative ischemic stroke; role of transcranial doppler ultrasonography in cerebrovascular disease; and management of carotid stenosis.
