New York/Stuttgart – According to the World Health Organization, 15 million people suffer stroke worldwide each year. Of these, 5 million die and another 5 million are permanently disabled. With these startling statistics, it is no surprise that new and better protocols in the care of stroke patients are continually sought by physicians.
Understanding that one of the keys to maximizing the care of a stroke patient is an interdisciplinary team of physicial specialists, “Hemorrhagic and Ischemic Stroke: Medical, Imaging, Surgical, and Interventional Approaches,” recently published by Thieme, provides comprehensive, practical, and cutting-edge information for neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiologists, neurointerventionalists, and other health care professionals who care for stroke patients. The authors focus on what they refer to as the "four pillars" of stroke care: medical management, imaging, open surgery and neurointerventional surgery, which are brought together for the first time, to provide a cohesive, strategic methodology for treating stroke patients.
“From its inception, the goal of this project has been to produce a highly up-to-date and practical book which focuses on medical, radiological, interventional, and surgical treatment paradigms. Conceptually, we strove to create an immediately available and user-friendly resource for trainees and those in their early postgraduate careers. As the sections of the book suggest, our audience includes neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and those physicians engaged in neurological critical care. This book will also serve as a useful reference for more experienced subspecialists in all of these areas as it reflects a state-of-the-art snapshot.” – From the Author’s Preface
Edited by a well-respected group of neurocritical care specialists from Northwestern University in Chicago, this compelling new reference includes 40 chapters complimented by chapter-specific videos illustrating procedures used for treating stroke patients.
“The publication of this modern, comprehensive text is very timely given the phenomenal technological advances that we have seen over the last few years in neuro-imaging, medical and intensive care, and surgical and interventional techniques for stroke.” – Roberto C. Heros, MD, Professor and Co-Chairman of Neurological Surgery, University of Miami.
