Transient ischemic attacks are sudden in onset and complete clinical recovery occurs in less than 24 hours. Average duration of the attack is 5 minutes. Usually five years after a TIA 1 in 3 people will have stroke. All patients must get carotid duplex Doppler US and CT scan done at presentation to avoid misdiagnosing the condition. It can be misdiagnosed as a migraine, epileptic seizure, multiple sclerosis, Meniere's disease, hypoglycaemia, drug reactions or any psychological condition. Aim of the treatment must be to minimise the risk of a stroke.
