Complexities of cerebrovascular disease demand the use of sophisticated investigative techniques in order to establish an accurate anatomical diagnosis which, in turn, is necessary to insure proper management. Cerebral angiography, plus ancillary methods, enables a high rate of precision in safe diagnosis. These techniques should be routinely applied to stroke; patients. In carefully selected patients who present the angiographic picture of small cerebral artery narrowing or occlusion, anticoagulant therapy is remarkably effective in preventing clinical progression of cerebral vascular disease. Intensive methods of physical rehabilitation applied to selected patients in early stages of a completed stroke may produce considerable neurologic recovery.
