Product information Hemorrhagic and Ischemic Stroke

A transdisciplinary approach to the medical, radiologic, interventional, and surgical treatment of stroke

In the last decade, advances in interventional, microsurgcial, radiosurgical techniques, medical approaches, and imaging technology have dramatically changed the management of ischemic stroke. Perhaps the most important advance has been the increasing collaboration between multispecialty clinicians to deliver team-based stroke care. Hemorrhagic and Ischemic Stroke, Second Edition by renowned neurosurgeons Bernard R. Bendok and H. Hunt Batjer and acclaimed contributors provides a user-friendly, single resource for managing ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. The second edition has been updated to reflect progress, most notably acute evaluation and triage, advanced imaging, critical care and medical support, and endovascular and surgical interventions. In addition to scientifically supported content, readers will benefit from pragmatic, real-world applications and concise, practical reviews.

Organized into four sections and 41 chapters, the text starts with the section Acute Triage, which includes early diagnosis and medical decision-making, advances in medical imaging, innovations in prehospital management of stroke, and the promise of telestroke networks. The second section, Critical Care, covers the importance of astute clinical examination, stabilization, and advanced neuromonitoring techniques. The third section, Open Surgical, Minimally Invasive, and Microsurgical Approaches, reviews recent surgical innovations that have the potential to be lifesaving and enhance quality of life in select patients. The fourth and final section, Neurointerventional Approaches, explores recent innovations in image-guided catheter techniques to deliver new therapies for stroke treatment and prevention.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
