The new third edition of Pediatric Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disorders provides a modern clinical approach to managing stroke and other cerebrovascular problems in infants, children, and adolescents. Incorporating data from important clinical trials and case series, recommendations from the American Heart Association consensus paper on the management of pediatric stroke, and the latest information on new diagnostic techniques, the book offers a comprehensive, evidence-based review of current thinking and practice in this challenging field. Covering occurrence, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment, this integrated state-of-the-art text is essential reading for anyone involved in the care of children with suspected stroke or other cerebrovascular pathologies.

The new Third Edition of this classic work has been completely updated and rewritten to reflect current science and practice. An extensive, entirely new chapter on treatment provides specific guidance on when to use antiplatelet agents, anticoagulants, and thrombolytic agents in children and also includes a section on neurorehabilitation after stroke. An expanded and thoroughly updated diagnostic approach chapter covers the latest applications in stroke imaging such as computed tomography angiography, diffusion weighted MRI, and perfusion CT. A seminal chapter on epidemiology of childhood stroke introduces the more important stroke risk factors in the context of their influence on overall pediatric stroke incidence. Features of Pediatric Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disorders, Third Edition Include:

  • Comprehensive in scope: evidence-based coverage of pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy of cerebrovascular disorders in children
  • All chapters updated to include recommendations from the AHA consensus guidelines
  • Maintains the practical, clinical flavor established in previous editions, with numerous illustrations and useful suggestions for patient care
  • Written by world-class stroke experts: Dr. Roach chaired the AHA panel that produced the consensus guidelines on childhood stroke and Drs. Lo and Heyer have published extensively on the topic
