This book aims to equip readers with a sound understanding of the similarities and differences between stroke and coronary disease, thereby assisting in optimal choice of medication for the purpose of secondary prevention in individual patients. The coverage includes epidemiology, mechanisms of vascular disease, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment selection depending on the location of atherosclerosis. Because stroke and coronary disease share common points in their pathophysiology, they are easily regarded as comparable vascular disorders; however, this perception overlooks important differences in pathophysiology and clinical features. Recognition of these differences is of prime importance for correct patient management, and indispensable when dealing with patients in whom both diseases are present. In providing comprehensive and accurate information on the subject, this well-illustrated book will be invaluable for all physicians who care for patients with stroke or heart diseases, as well as for students wishing to acquire up-to-date knowledge on stroke management.
