Cooperative study of hospital frequency and character of transient ischemic attacks. I. Background, organization, and clinical survey.

Abstract

To better understand transient ischemic attacks (TIA), all patients (1,328) with TIA-like symptoms were identified at six participating institutions representing known variations in geography, referral patterns, and socioeconomic status. A total of 954 patients were observed for a mean of 14.3 months. Problems in diagnosis are defined, demographic information is summarized, and features of the histroy, examination, tests, and treatments are noted.
