Summary "Comprised of short chapters written in a succinct and bulleted style, with clear diagrams and figures to illustrate where appropriate, Stroke Prevention in Clinical Practice is ideal for the busy doctor looking for a comprehensive pocket-sized guide to the everyday management of transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs) and strokes." "It is vital to be aware of the early signs of TIAs and recognize them as soon as possible, since a considerable amount of stroke prevention treatment stems from knowing the warning signs and taking action. This book discusses how to accurately diagnose the leading causes of strokes and offers comprehensive treatment advice to avoid future recurrences, with all chapters written by leading experts in the field."--Jacket
