ABSTRACT
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.

    In a randomized double-blind trial, the Study Group compared the efficacy of E5510, a novel antiplatelet agent, and aspirin in preventing the recurrence of transient ischemic attacks (TIA). In total, 227 patients who suffered from TIA in the twelve weeks prior to the study were enrolled. They...
