Transient ischemic attacks: predictability of future ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack events.
The short-term risk of an ischemic stroke after a transient ischemic attack (TIA) is estimated to be approximately 3%-10% at 2 days, 5% at 7 days, and 9%-17% at 90 days, depending on active or passive ascertainment of ischemic stroke. Various risk pr

Transient Neurologic Deficits: Can Transient Ischemic Attacks Be Discriminated from Migraine Aura without Headache?
Transient neurologic deficits (TNDs) are often considered first to be transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) but TND with normal brain imaging is also characteristic of other prevalent conditions like migraine aura leading to potential confusion. We aimed

Prevalence, knowledge, and treatment of transient ischemic attacks in China.
To investigate the prevalence, knowledge, and treatment of TIA in a Chinese adult population.

Transient ischemic attacks, risk factors, and precerebral color doppler angiosonography.
The aim of this study was to ascertain the importance of color-coded Doppler sonography (CCDS), a noninvasive examination technique, in early detection of atherosclerotic lesions in precerebral arteries. CCDS was utilized in a group of patients with

Prior transient ischemic attacks may have a neuroprotective effect in patients with ischemic stroke.
Although functional recovery and survival after ischemic infarction seem to improve in patients with prior transient ischemic attack (TIA), little is known about the role of characteristics of prior TIA in subsequent cerebral infarction. Thus, the ob

Four-year follow-up of transient ischemic attacks, strokes, and mimics: a retrospective transient ischemic attack clinic cohort study.
There is limited information on outcomes from rapid access transient ischemic attack (TIA) clinics. We present 4-year outcomes of TIAs, strokes, and mimics from a UK TIA clinic database.

Paroxysmal freezing of gait in a patient with mesial frontal transient ischemic attacks.
Rare patients have been reported who developed a mixture of gait disturbances following a focal lesion in the frontal lobe. Thus, the exact location of frontal lesion responsible for a specific gait disturbance is not well defined.

Risk of Wheezing Attacks in Infants With Transient Tachypnea Newborns.
The most common reason of respiratory distress in the newborn is transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN). There are some reports saying that TTN is associated with increased frequencies of wheezing attacks.

Dolichoectasia in vertebrobasilar arteries presented as transient ischemic attacks: A case report.
Vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia (VBD) is a rare vasculopathy. The etiology of this disease is unknown. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) of vertebrobasilar system refer to a transient (< 24 hours) lowering of blood flow in the posterior circulation of
