The article presents information on a study that focuses on risk factors associated with myocardial infarction (MI) or vascular death in patients. Researchers have conducted randomized controlled trials to sort out the incidence of MI or nonstoke vascular death in patients with ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). An analysis of the study provides fair estimates of risk for nonstroke vascular death and MI after stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). The study found that probability of MI or nonstroke vascular death is approximately 2% per year.
