Summary Offered in print, online, and downloadable formats, this updated edition of Stroke: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Management delivers convenient access to the latest research findings and management approaches for cerebrovascular disease. Picking up from where J.P. Mohr and colleagues left off, a new team of editors - Drs. Grotta, Albers, Broderick, Kasner, Lo, Mendelow, Sacco, and Wong - head the sixth edition of this classic text, which is editored by the world's foremost stroke experts
