Roach et al. (child neurology and pediatrics, Ohio State U.) describe stroke and other cerebrovascular problems in infants, children, and adolescents. They cover the history of the field, epidemiology, and risk factors; development of the cerebral vasculature; signs and symptoms of dysfunction; diagnosis; and the incidence, pathogenesis, and treatment of disorders such as cerebral embolism, hematologic disorders and neoplasms, migraine and alternating hemiplegia, hemorrhage, venous malformations, traumatic disorders, neonatal disorders, vascular disorders of the spinal cord; as well as genetic causes of cerebrovascular disease and treatment of stroke. This edition has been updated and rewritten to reflect current science and practice, including recommendations from the American Heart Association consensus guidelines, and a new chapter on treatment that has guidance on when to use antiplatelet agents, anticoagulants, and thrombolytic agents. It adds information from recent pediatric case series and clinical trials and relevant adult stroke trials.
