    Carolina Acute Stroke Training (CAST) was developed by the UNC Department of Neurology stroke faculty and designed by the Educational Design and Innovation team at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. It was funded by the North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative and a North Carolina AHEC Innovation grant. Excitotoxicity, defined as cell death resulting from the toxic actions of excitatory amino acids, is actually considered as a major factor contributing to the early stage of ischemic cell death in stroke. In stroke, once vessel occlusion is produced, the disruptions to the blood flow in the affected areas decrease the delivery of oxygen and metabolic substrates to by: 4.

    Acute ischemic stroke is in most areas of the world the most prevalent neurological emergency; one American has a stroke every 40 seconds. In the United States alone there are more than , strokes per year, with the majority being new events. 1 The number of hospitalizations in the United States continues to increase. The cost associated with the care of stroke patients in was $ Acute Ischemic Stroke: Imaging and Intervention is a comprehensive presentation of the state-of-the-art in the diagnosis and treatment of acute ischemic stroke. This book, the first of its kind, offers a practical review of recent advances in stroke neuroimaging, and the latest therapeutic options for this disease.

    The reasons for acute hypertension in the setting of acute stroke are poorly understood. Because it occurs in patients with transient ischemic attacks as well as stroke patients, Cushing's phenomenon (increased blood pressure secondary to elevated intracranial pressure) cannot be responsible, except in cases of massive cere-bral infarction. This book approaches the topic of management of acute ischemic stroke in an interdisciplinary manner, explaining how best to utilize the methods currently available for medical, surgical, and endovascular care. After an opening section on basics such as pathophysiology, radiological.

Unfortunately, The Stroke Book also has a number of major flaws. Neuroimaging plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of patients with acute stroke, and Chapter 7, covering CT in acute stroke, is excellent.

However, neuroimaging is otherwise poorly presented. Chapter 8, covering MR imaging in acute stroke, is particularly weak.
