  • Transient ischemic attack

     Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) have been shown to be a strong predictor of subsequent stroke and death. Transient ischemic attacks usually last a few minutes. Most signs and symptoms disappear within an hour. The signs and symptoms of TIA resemble those found early in a stroke and may include sudden onset of: • Weakness, numbness or paralysis in your face, arm or leg, typically on one side of your body • Slurred or garbled speech or difficulty understanding others • Blindness in one or both eyes or double vision • Dizzinessor loss of balance or coordination Hill et al found that the risk of stroke after TIA in Canada was 9.5% at 90 days, and 14.5% at 1 year. A transient ischemic attack has the same origins as that of an ischemic stroke, the most common type of stroke. In an ischemic stroke, a clot blocks the blood supply to part of your brain. In a transien Anti-platelet drugs. These medications make your platelets, one of the circulating blood cell types, less likely to stick together.

     When blood vessels are injured, sticky platelets begin to form clots, a process completed by clotting proteins in blood plasma. The most frequently used anti-platelet medication is aspirin. Aspirin is also the least expensive treatment with the fewest potential side effects. An alternative to aspirin is the anti-platelet drug clopidogrel (Plavix). Your doctor may consider prescribing Aggrenox, a combination of low-dose aspirin and the anti-platelet drug dipyridamole, to reduce blood clotting. The way dipyridamole works is slightly different from aspirin. t ischemic attack, unlike a stroke, the blockage is brief, and there is no permanent damage.

    NINDS is the leading supporter of research on stroke and TIA in the U.S. and sponsors studies ranging from clinical trials to investigations of basic biological mechanisms as well as studies with animals.
