Cites a report conducted by researchers in the U.S. which emphasized the role of surgical therapy in the treatment of transient ischemic attacks. Occurrence of the attacks commonly associated with the distribution of carotid arteries; Causes of transient ischemic attacks may be more significant in patients with multi-vessel occlusive disease; Advocacy on treatment modalities to decrease incidence of cerebral infarction.
