American College of Physicians publishes 'Stroke'

Stroke, by its very nature, breeds medical fragmentation. While knowledge has increased dramatically among the many specialties involved in its prevention and treatment, unification is critical for improving patient care.

"Stroke," the ninth book in the American College of Physicians' Key Diseases series, brings together physicians and surgeons so that all are on the same page when it comes to stroke prevention, treatment and recovery.

Co-edited by Robert J. Wityk, MD, and Rafael H. Llinas, MD, both of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, "Stroke" delivers concise, practice-oriented overviews and practical recommendations to guide decision-making for the non-neurologist. "Stroke" answers questions that are frequently asked by internists, neurologists in-training, medical students, stroke patients, caregivers, and the general population.

"Stroke" is "a clearly written modern manual of stroke diagnosis and treatment," according to Martin A. Samuels, MD, FANN, FACP, Chairman and Neurologist-in-Chief, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, writing in the book's Foreword. The book is a guide to the clinical management of patients -- from clinical and laboratory assessment, to prognosis, rehabilitation, and stroke prevention.

"Stroke" includes cutting-edge information on acute stroke treatment, primary stroke prevention, and the newest therapies for stroke-related symptoms and disorders. Drs. Wityk and Llinas worked with 26 book contributors, many from Johns Hopkins affiliated institutions, who are professors, medical directors and researchers in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, and radiology.

The book's 18 chapters include: "Overview of the Approach to the Stroke Patient," "Antithrombolytic Therapy," "Carotid Artery Disease," "Stroke in Young Patients," "Aneurysms and Subarachnoid Hemorrhage," and "Effect of Oral Contraceptives and Hormone Replacement on Stroke Risk in Women."
