Description Diagnosis and treatment of TIA must be initiated within hours rather than days. TIA is an emergent health or life-threatening condition, so the procedure in patients with TIA should be similar in patients with cerebral infarction. TIA patient has an increased risk of cerebral infarction, recurrence of TIA and other vascular events (mainly myocardial infarction). The risk of cerebral infarction is highest immediately after a TIA in the first 48 hours. EXPRESS study results show reduction in risk of cerebral infarction within 3 months after a TIA from 8% to 2% if an intensive treatment immediately launched. If it is not possible to complete an outpatient rapid testing and implementation of rigorous secondary prevention, hospital admission should be generally preferred for all patients with TIA.
