The third of three volumes on stroke in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology series (Series Editors: Michael J. Aminoff, Department of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, USA; François Boller, Bethesda, USA; Dick F. Swaab, Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, Amsterdam, the Netherlands), covering investigation, management and therapy of stroke. Until a few years ago, strokes were considered 'experiments of nature' that provided help in understanding the functional anatomy of the brain, but for which little could be done in terms of therapeutic intervention and prevention. These three volume record how this has now profoundly changed and cover advances in our understanding of the biochemical background of strokes coupled with advances in fields as diverse as epidemiology, genetics, neuroimaging, interventional radiology, surgery, clinical psychology and most particularly prevention and management. The aim is to provide both basic researchers with the foundation for new investigations and clinicians a source of reference to enable them to gain a thorough knowledge and understanding of the clinical features and management of the many neurological manifestations of stroke.

Stroke is a leading cause of death and the major cause of long-term, physical, psychological and social disability in the elderly around the world. Knowing and treating the most common risk factors for stroke such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, atrial fibrillation, and obesity may reduce the occurrence of stroke sub-stantially. In the last decades, there has been tremendous progress in the development of noninvasive diagnostic techniques like ultrasound MRI, CT angiography, CT perfusion, as well as new effective therapeutic strategies for acute ischemic stroke which established vascular neurology as one of the most progressive fields in medicine. This publication provides the reader with the most recent updated advanced knowl-edge on the practical clinical approach to stroke medicine. It covers essential and practical information on the pathophysiology and epidemiology of stroke, new diagnostic techniques which allow for better diagnosis and identification of various subtypes of stroke, and new therapeutic strategies for acute stroke and transient ischemic attack.

Margaret Cromarty was a nurse who suffered a catastrophic stroke aged just 43, which left her with Locked-In Syndrome. Still paralysed even now, with the aid of an on-screen keyboard she has written this unflinching account of her treatment. It describes the frustrations of being fully aware but ignored as a person by carers unable to communicate effectively, and the painfully slow steps towards rehabilitation.It contains vital lessons for health professionals caring for victims of stroke, and for families and friends of patients. 'I learned later that the doctors expected that I would die. They made a poor attempt at concealing this expectation. They discussed me over me. I was dismayed at the negative vibes they exuded each time they came to see me. I felt that they had written me off already. Of course they can have had little idea of how their behaviour affected me. I just lay there, seemingly unresponsive, just existing, unable to enlighten them as to what was going on inside my head.' - Margaret Cromarty.
