- COMMENTARY: Adding aspirin to clopidogrel increased bleeding
without reducing recurrent ischemic vascular events in high-risk
patients. Hankey, Graeme J. // ACP Journal Club;Nov/Dec2004, Vol. 141 Issue 3, p68
The article presents a commentary on the study, which concluded that adding aspirin to clopidogrel increased bleeding without reducing recurrent ischemic vascular events in high-risk patients. The results of the MATCH trial are consistent with the known effects of aspirin in patients with TIA or...

- transient ischemic attack. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p2359
An encyclopedia entry for "transient ischemic attack" is presented. The term refers to a neurologic deficit, having a reversible vascular cause, that results to stroke symptoms that resolve within 24 hour. Noted symptoms are weakness of one half of the face or half of the body, confusion,...
- I've Heard of TIA, but what the heck is a TNA? // Primary Care Reports;Mar2008 Clinical Briefs in Primary, Vol. 14, p6
The article discusses research being done on transient ischemic attacks (TIA) and transient neurologic attacks (TNA). It references a study by M. J. Bos et al published in the 2007 issue of "JAMA." It cites the components of transient attacks of neurological dysfunction. It summarizes study results.
- Neuronal plasticity after ischemic preconditioning and TIA-like preconditioning ischemic periods. Sommer, Clemens // Acta Neuropathologica;May2009, Vol. 117 Issue 5, p511
Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) have recently become the center of attention since they are thought to share some characteristics with experimental ischemic preconditioning (IPC). This phenomenon describes the situation that a brief, per se harmless, cerebral ischemic period renders the brain...
- A simple risk score predicted 7-day stroke risk after transient ischemic attack. // ACP Journal Club;Jan/Feb2006, Vol. 144 Issue 1, p24
This article focuses on the role of a simple risk score in predicting stroke during the first 7 days after probable or definite transient ischemic attack (TIA). 209 patients with a first-ever probable or definite TIA; 190 patients with probable or definite TIA and 378 patients with suspected TIA...

A quiz concerning the transient ischaemic attack is presented.
- ABCD score predicts 30-day stroke risk for patients with TIA. Tsivgoulis, G.; Spengos, K.; Manta, P. // Journal of Family Practice;Mar2007, Vol. 56 Issue 3, p185
The article discusses the study that determines whether clinical factors reliably predict which patients with transient ischemic attacks (TIA) will experience a stroke in the next 30 days. The study involves 226 consecutive patients hospitalized with TIA, wherein the outcome, predicted by the...
- Long term evolution of patients treated in a TIA unit. Benavente, Lorena; Calleja, Sergio; Larrosa, Davinia; Vega, Juan; Mauri, Gerard; Pascual, Julio; Lahoz, Carlos H. // International Archives of Medicine;2013, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p1
Background: Transient ischemic attacks (TIA) entail a high risk of stroke recurrence, which depends on the etiology. New organizational models have been created, but there is not much information about the long-term evolution of patients managed according to these premises. Our aim is to refer...
