- Transient Ischemic Attacks: A Neurologic Emergency? Leifer, Dana // Neurology Alert;Feb2008, Vol. 26 Issue 6, p42
Two recent studies suggest that rapid TIA evaluation and treatment can reduce stroke risk.
- Recognising the signs of a stroke. // Practice Nurse;2/27/2009, Vol. 37 Issue 4, p54
The article offers information on the signs and symptoms of stroke. The prevalence of stroke in Great Britain is estimated. It describes the event leading to stroke. The components of the FAST test for recognizing the symptoms of stroke are facial weaknesses, arm weakness, speech problems and...
- Elective stenting for symptomatic middle cerebral artery stenosis presenting as transient ischaemic deficits or stroke attacks: short term arteriographical and clinical outcome/ Stenting of symptomatic M1 stenosis of middle cerebral artery; an initial ... // Current Medical Literature: Stroke Review;2004, Vol. 8 Issue 3, p28
This article focuses on treatment of 14 patients with symptomatic proximal middle cerebral artery stenosis who had recurrent transient ischemic attacks resistant to medical therapy or stroke. Stent-assisted angioplasty was successfully performed in eight of 14 patients without any serious...
- Complete Internal Carotid Artery Occlusion Presenting as "Seizures". Khan, Shah-Naz Hayat // Journal of Neurology Research;2012, Vol. 2 Issue 6, p244
Limb shaking is a rare and atypical presentation for a transient ischemic attack. It can be described as a "cerebral ischemic claudication" due to attenuation in an already compromised cerebral perfusion. The uncharacteristic presentation may lead to confusion and misdiagnosis, for example,...
- Secondary Prevention of Ischemic Cerebrovascular Disease. What Is the Evidence? Paraskevas, Kosmas I.; Daskalopoulou, Stella S.; Daskalopoulos, Marios E.; Liapis, Christos D. // Angiology;Sep/Oct2005, Vol. 56 Issue 5, p539
Patients who had a transient ischemic attack or stroke are at increased risk of experiencing recurrent cerebrovascular events. For this reason, secondary prevention of ischemic cerebrovascular disease is essential. Several modifiable, lifestyle-associated risk factors have been implicated, such...
- Hemostatic Balance Index in TIA Patients: Sex-Related Changes. Lippi, Gualtiero; Arnetoli, G.; Accardi, R.; Doni, A. // Angiology;Jul1985, Vol. 36 Issue 7, p425
In order to evaluate the occurrence of hemostatic disorders, 37 patients with transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) and 50 control subjects were studied by means of the Hemostatic Balance Index (H.B.I.) derived from Raby's Thrombodynamic Potential Index (T.P.I.) and Fearnley's Whole Blood Diluted...
- What you need to know about ministrokes or TIA. // Patient Care;Mar2004, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p65
Presents information on transient ischemic attack (TIA). Similarity of TIA to a stroke; Symptoms of TIA such as dizziness and loss of balance or coordination; Risk factors of TIA.
- Recurrent cerebrovascular ischaemic events in patients with interatrial septal abnormalities: a follow-up study. Cerrato, P.; Priano, L.; Imperiale, D.; Bosco, G.; Destefanis, E.; Villar, A.; Ribezzo, M.; Trevi, G.; Bergamasco, B.; Orzan, F. // Neurological Sciences;Feb2006, Vol. 26 Issue 6, p411
The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk of recurrent ischaemic cerebrovascular events (stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA)) in patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) or atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) treated with different therapeutic regimens. We enrolled 86 patients aged...
- Strokes and TIAs. // American Family Physician;4/1/2004, Vol. 69 Issue 7, p1679
Provides information on strokes and transient ischemic attacks (TIA). Details of how and when stroke and TIA occurs; Age group who are likely to be affected by stroke; Symptoms of a stroke.
