About this book


It might appear bold to publish the proceedings of yet another sym­ posium on the diagnosis and management of stroke. However, I hope in selecting topics to reflect 'new trends' and in inviting speakers to discuss these trends and the related concepts and results, that we have been suc­ cessful in attaining a high level of scholarship as well as in appealing to a wide readership. The central issues here derive from a new typology of strokes that should replace the obsolete distinction based on purely temporal param­ eters so aptly criticized by Caplan. A classification of strokes on the basis of pathogenesis requires a synopsis of information gained from history, neurological and cardiovascular findings, ultrasound studies (ex­ tracranial as well as transcranial), correctly timed CT scan investigation and, if necessary, from selective angiography. Only the recognition of the role of pathogenetic events for a patient permits the application of a ra­ tional therapy regimen.
