An excellent overview on current stroke syndromes, including problematic clinical pictures various editors (Bogousslavsky, Agnelli, Caso and Paciaroni) .

Since Stroke is the most common neurologic disease and the leading cause of adult disability in Western countries. The initial diagnosis of stroke is clinical and needs to be done as rapidly as possible to guarantee optimal medical and interventional therapy. The emergency stroke management depends heavily upon stroke scores to quantify the damage and to speed up the diagnosis process. Unfortunately, several important stroke syndromes are not taken into consideration in these currently used stroke scores and therefore tend to be overlooked and not treated. Compiled by leading international experts, this book provides an excellent overview on current stroke syndromes, including particularly problematic clinical pictures. Thus, together with stroke scores, the publication will lead to more thorough assessments in emergency settings.

It’s time to channel scarce resources left on what it may mean more to our communities. We look forward initiatives that may lead to a new renaissance of our universities and minds.

Unofficial news reported as soon available an open journal in stroke medicine. The name is supposed to be cerebrovascular disease extra. Indexed in medline but without impact factor. This may offer larger diffusion for CED manuscripts otherwise buried in karger archives. Many reccommended how open sourcing should be an istitutional choice for large academical and educational projects and not a minor fund raising activity for second level science.
