Stroke book cover


Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management

First published in 1986 under the editorial direction of Dr. Henry J.M. Barnett, this encyclopedic, yet readable text has served as a "one-stop shop" for generations of practitioners seeking authoritative coverage of the scientific and clinical aspects of stroke. The 4th Edition features a new editorial team led by former co-editor Dr. J.P. Mohr, offering updated and expanded coverage of epidemiology and prevention, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, specific medical diseases related to stroke, pathophysiology, and medical and surgical therapy.
