Prevention of Stroke sums up and critically analyzes our present knowledge and understanding of all major aspects of stroke prophylaxis, medical and surgical. The book is intended for not only neurologists and neurosurgeons directly involved with stroke patients, but also vascular surgeons, internists, family physicians, and health planners. Topics explored include the cellular basis of atherosclerosis; stroke risk factors; head and neck bruits in stroke prevention; the present status of anticoagulant prophylaxis; hypertension and stroke prevention; and prevention of cardioembolic stroke, as well as the efficacy of aspirin and of ticlopidine in stroke prevention. Surgical prophylaxis is examined through discussions of carotid endarterectomy, prevention of stroke from cerebral vascular malformations, prevention of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, balloon transluminal angioplasty of the carotid artery in the head and neck, and prevention of recurrent stroke
