New edition of landmark stroke textbook
Date:2/17/2010

Since it was published more than 40 years ago, Toole's Cerebrovascular Disorders has been a standard textbook for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of strokes.

In the new 6th edition, the book has been completely revised and updated by Drs. E. Steve Roach of Ohio State University School of Medicine, Kerstin Bettermann of Penn State College of Medicine and Jos Biller, chairman of the Department of Neurology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. They all trained under the original author, Dr. James Toole.

The 6th edition includes new chapters on genetics, pregnancy-related stroke and acute treatment. The book retains its practical focus on bedside diagnosis and treatment. The book, intended for both stroke specialists and residents, contains more than 200 images, many in color.

In a forward to the 6th edition, Toole wrote that stroke neurology has made dramatic advancements since the book was first published in 1967. "In those days, our equipment was a detailed history, a reflex hammer, a tuning fork, a wisp of cotton and a pin," Toole wrote. Today, he noted, neurodiagnostic tests include ultrasound, computed tomography angiography and CT and MRI scans.

In the preface, Roach, Bettermann and Biller wrote: "It is our hope that ours as well as related books will continue to need updates, because, despite the extraordinary progress made, there is much still to discover and learn."

The book is published by Cambridge University Press.
