Thrombolytic and Antithrombotic Therapy for Stroke
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Thrombolytic therapy for stroke with the introduction of tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) was a god-send to stroke physicians, since it meant that morbidity and mortality could be reduced with the optimal use of t-PA. Professor Bogousslavsky and the contributors provide the reader their personal perspectives on the evidence-based uses of various thrombolytic and anti-thrombotic agents that are available and that can provide successful outcomes. Everyone working in the casualty and emergency room must read this up-to-date, thoroughly referenced, clearly-written text: it is de rigeur.
