The article discusses the early risk for stroke at 2, 30, and 90 days in patients who have had a transient ischemic attack (TIA). For the research cohort studies reporting the outcome of early risk were selected. It is concluded that risk for strokeat 2, 30, and 90 days after transient ischemic attack is high.
