OBJECTIVES Transient ischemic attack (TIA) with carotid artery disease (CAD) can increase the risk of cognitive decline. However, the neural mechanisms of the disorder remain unclear. The aim of this study was, using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), to detect microstructural changes in patients with symptomatic CAD presenting with TIA, and to explore their relationship with cognitive functions. METHODS In all, 35 patients with right-sided CAD and ipsilateral TIA and 35 healthy controls were… CONTINUE READING
