  • Description
  • Details

Subcortical Stroke is a new and revised edition of the 1995 book Lacunar and Other Subcortical Infarctions. The book reviews the considerable advances in our understanding of the stroke process as a result of advances in the fields of neurochemistry, imaging and genetics, as well as highlighting the implications for new therapeutic approaches.

Stroke is one of the most common causes of death and subcortical stroke accounts for 20-30% of all cerebrovascular infarctions. Our understanding of stroke processes in general, and subcortical stroke in particular, has advanced considerably in recent years. Research findings from the fields of neurochemistry, imaging and genetics have provided insight and input to our understanding of this condition, and this new edition provides an opportunity to describe these advances, and to relate the findings to the clinical expression, neural mechanism, prognosis and treatment of subcortical stroke. In addition, new subcortical syndromes such as CADASIL are covered, as is subcortical haemorrhage. This book presents a comprehensive and authoritative review of the field with contributions from the leading international experts.
