Primary care physicians are the first to diagnose transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs), and are the doctors who can undertake a considerable amount of stroke prevention treatment. This book fills the primary care physician's need for a short clear text explaining how to accurately diagnose a TIA, determine what investigations are indicated and how and when to intervene to reduce the risk of stroke. Short chapters are written in point form with clear diagrams and figures, each chapter written by an expert in the field. Stroke is a brain attack and a major cause of disability. Active intervention can prevent stroke especially in high risk groups.

From the reviews: "This is a pocket guide to primary and secondary prevention of stroke. This slim volume is meant to be a handbook for decision-making in risk factor reduction in stroke. It is therefore meant to aid clinicians in identifying risk factors and considering the potential risks and benefits of intervention to modify them. ... Written for physicians who come in contact with stroke patients, the book seems most appropriate for non-neurologists." (George F. Wittenberg, Doody's Review Service, February, 2008)
