Some UNDERLINING and margin notes, library stamps/marks/labels/slip, otherwise light wear. Crisp hardcover.; "The purpose of this volume is collect and organize in a singular source not only the contributions to knowledge that recently have been made by the diverse medical specialties involved in the syndrome of TMB [Transient Monocular Blindness] but also to place in perspective that knowledge which is uncertain and those questions that remain to be answered. To this end, this work represents an effort at dealing with a number of vexing questions. Why is the blindness episode transient? Why do some patients describe it as the descent of a curtain and others as a blur or a mist or a film? Why is the location of the blind area variable, sometimes originating from the top or the side or the center of the eye? Is the curtain related to the size, location, or composition of emboli? Is the duration of the symptoms important as long as they are completely reversed? Should the word "fleeting" be limited to a particularly short period of blindness?" - Preface. ; Ex-Library; xv, 310 pages.
