Report of the Joint Committee for Stroke Facilities
VII. Medical and Surgical Management of Stroke
Because it contains material concerned with the many critical problems of diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and treatment which arise when a patient presents with a possible stroke, Medical and Surgical Management is one of the most important Sections to appear in this series of publications from the Joint Committee for Stroke Facilities. Practical aspects of the management of transient ischemic attacks (TIA), strokes-inevolution, completed strokes, and the comatose patient are discussed in detail, and attempts made to distinguish between ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Recommendations of the study group are listed.
