The second edition of Stroke Medicine incorporates considerable advances in the treatment of stroke that have occurred since the first edition published. This provides an up-to-date and easily accessible source of information on all aspects of stroke care, from acute care through to
rehabilitation and secondary prevention. The new edition includes some additional updates on cardiac investigation of stroke, due to novel methods for detecting atrial fi
illation, and new trial data has been added to the chapter on Treatment of Stroke. The book includes numerous illustrations and
tables presenting information in an easy-to-follow way and is designed to be used by the practising physician as a practical handbook of stroke care.
