Show Summary Details


Chapter 27 discusses the most commonly encountered clinical presentations and the difficulties in management of major hemispheric ischemic stroke syndromes, as well as less-frequently encountered disorders when different therapies are recommended. Admission to the neurosciences intensive care unit (NICU) is largely determined by the proclivity for clinical deterioration or coexisting cardiopulmonary instability.
