Identification of ischemia is essential as 20% of patients with ischemic stroke present with a TIA in the hours to days preceding the stroke. The diagnosis of TIA remains mostly clinical and is based on taking an accurate history. Recognition and management of TIA offer the most significant opportunity to prevent disabling stroke. TIA’s assessment is all about making the correct diagnosis, and taking a good history is critical. Effective prevention strategies include targeting the key modifiable factors like hypertension, elevated lipids, diabetes band also modifying lifestyle habits.
