Encouraged by the success of the Italian editions, the Authors have decided to publish an English version taking into account the latest technical and methodological advances and the consequent new acquisitions in clinical practice. The contribution of Professor R. Jinkins has been essential to carry out both these tasks. The resulting work is an up-to-date technical tool that preserves its original aim of contributing to the training of those radiologists who work in emergency departments. We hope that this revised and extended English version will have the same success as the pre- ous Italian editions, thereby confirming the validity of our initiative. The work of all the friends and colleagues who have contributed to the making of this book is gratefully acknowledged. Tommaso Scarabino Ugo Salvolini CONTENTS I.

This updated second edition of Acute Ischemic Stroke: Imaging and Intervention provides a comprehensive account of the state of the art in the diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke. The basic format of the first edition has been retained, with sections on fundamentals such as pathophysiology and causes, imaging techniques and interventions. However, each chapter has been revised to reflect the important recent progress in advanced neuroimaging and the use of interventional tools. In addition, a new chapter is included on the classification instruments for ischemic stroke and their use in predicting outcomes and therapeutic triage. All of the authors are internationally recognized experts and members of the interdisciplinary stroke team at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The text is supported by numerous informative illustrations, and ease of reference is ensured through the inclusion of suitable tables. This book will serve as a unique source of up-to-date information for neurologists, emergency physicians, radiologists and other health care providers who care for the patient with acute ischemic stroke.

This volume offers definitive treatment and patient management guidelines for neurologists faced with a neurological emergency or urgent neurological problem. Unlike texts geared to the emergency room physician, this book is written for the neurological specialist, and covers not only the true emergencies, but also urgent problems that can develop into emergencies, such as altered consciousness and transient ischemic attacks. In addition, it addresses neurological conditions that are deemed urgent with regard to management of a chronic illness, such as severe chronic headaches, exacerbation of focal signs in a patient with multiple sclerosis, acute mental status changes in a patient with dementia, and appearance of a new movement disorder in a patient with Parkinson's disease. The editors have reorganized this second edition to emphasize a symptomatic approach and have focused the chapters for greater consistency of style.
