  • Findings
  • The value of CT findings for determining short-term prognosis after TIA has not been previously investigated. (ahajournals.org)
  • BACKGROUND: Early risk of stroke after a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) can be reliably predicted with risk scores based on clinical features of the patient and the event, but it is unclear how these features correlate with findings on brain imaging and few studies have investigated this in the subacute phase.

  • stenosis
  • For patients who have had a recent TIA or ischemic stroke and have ipsilateral stenosis, carotid endarterectomy is recommended if stenosis is 70 to 99 percent and perioperative morbidity and mortality are estimated to be less than 6 percent. (aafp.org)
  • treatment
  • Now, these don't cause any lasting damage, but very important, because if you're getting transient ischemic attacks, it means you're much more likely to get a full-blown stroke, so if you're getting them, you must see your doctor and get some treatment. (futurelearn.com)
