About this book

This timely volume addresses the intimate pathophysiologic relationship between hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Hypertension is one of the most important global public health challenges, and its relationship to stroke and other catastrophic cerebrovascular diseases is an area of growing understanding. In this outstanding book, the editors and authors clearly and concisely synthesize our developing knowledge and place epidemiologic and physiologic information into a practical clinical context. Comprehensive chapters present the evidence supporting strategies for stroke prevention and care, including blood pressure lowering therapies, anti-coagulation, and management of other cerebrovascular risk factors. In addition to prescriptive measures for first stroke prevention, the book illuminates current regimens for care immediately after acute stroke and for the prevention of recurrent stroke. A unique section is dedicated to the exploration of the interaction between elevated blood pressure and brain function and cognition. The concluding chapter provides a resource towards optimizing the organization of stroke care. Hypertension and Stroke is of great utility for specialists in neurology and cardiovascular medicine and a valuable practical resource for all physicians caring for older adults and hypertensive patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is interesting and well written by authorities in their fields. References are of sufficient number, and the tables and figures are appropriate. … this book could find a place in the libraries of neurologists, intensivists, hypertension experts, primary care physicians, or public health specialists. The vast array of medical professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension and stroke is testimony to the broad appeal this book can have.” (Panayiotis N. Varelas, Journal of the American Medical Association, November, 2011)

“This book is one of a series on Clinical Hypertension and Vascular Disease edited by William B. White, an eminent authority on hypertension. … useful to academics planning to write papers on the topics covered, as a source of references.” (Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, September, 2011)

“The pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of hypertension with respect to cerebrovascular disease, this book also reviews the management of hypertension in multiple settings such as in primary and secondary stroke prevention, acute ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, and vascular cognitive impairment/dementia. … a broad audience that includes primary care physicians, neurologists, cardiologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, residents, medical students, epidemiologists, stroke and cardiovascular researchers, and public health specialists. … This book offers a fresh perspective on the relationship between these two common entities.” (Dan Capampangan, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2011)
