About this book


Thrombolytic therapy is now reaching patients in a variety of settings all over the world.  Formerly in the domain of sub-specialists, thrombolytic therapy now rests in the realm of emergency medicine, intensive care, vascular, and neurocritical physicians.

 Extensively updated from previous editions, Thrombolytic Therapy for Acute Stroke, Third Edition is a practical and thorough reference to all those caring for acute stroke patients.  Chapters feature new data, technologies and cases offering guidance to treating acute stroke patients – with or without thrombolytic therapy.

 Physicians looking to utilize thrombolytic therapy for acute stroke will find this text an invaluable resource.
