Relative Survival After Transient Ischaemic Attack: Results From the Program of Research Informing Stroke Management (PRISM) Study

  title={Relative Survival After Transient Ischaemic Attack: Results From the Program of Research Informing Stroke Management (PRISM) Study},
  author={Melina Gattellari and Chris Goumas and Frances Garden M. Biost and John Worthington},
Background and Purpose— There is a lack of modern-day data quantifying the effect of transient ischemic attack (TIA) on survival, and recent data do not take into account expected survival. Methods— Data for 22 157 adults hospitalized with a TIA from July 1, 2000, to June 30, 2007, in New South Wales, Australia, were linked with registered deaths to June 30, 2009. We estimated survival relative to the age- and sex-matched general population up to 9-years after hospitalization for TIA comparing…

Four-Year Follow-Up of Transient Ischemic Attacks, Strokes, and Mimics: A Retrospective Transient Ischemic Attack Clinic Cohort Study

The results show a lower 90-day stroke incidence after TIA or minor stroke than in earlier studies, suggesting that rapid access daily TIA clinics may be having a significant effect on reducing strokes.

Four-Year Follow-Up of Transient Ischemic Attacks , Strokes , and Mimics

The results of 4-year follow-up of a larger cohort of patients, including TIAs, minor strokes, and mimics, referred to the daily TIA clinics of a UK general hospital are presented.

Trends in Transient Ischemic Attack Hospitalizations in the United States

Although overall TIA hospitalizations have decreased in the United States, the reduction has been more pronounced among older individuals, men, whites, and Hispanics, highlighting the need to target risk‐factor control among women, blacks, and individuals aged <45 years.

Readmission, mortality, and first‐year medical costs after stroke

Declining Rates of Fatal and Nonfatal Intracerebral Hemorrhage: Epidemiological Trends in Australia

Overall and fatal ICH rates have fallen in this large Australian population and there was no evidence of an increase in devastated survivors because the longer term mortality of 30‐day survivors has not increased over time.

Current aspects of TIA management



Incidence and Short-Term Prognosis of Transient Ischemic Attack in a Population-Based Study

The incidence rate of TIA in blacks and whites is slightly higher than previously reported, which may be related to the inclusion of blacks and out-of-hospital events, and there are racial and gender-related differences in the incidence.

Long-Term Prognosis of Cerebral Ischemia in Young Adults

Male gender, age >35 years, stroke at entry, and cardiac diseases were independent predictors of the composite outcome event at the Cox regression analysis, whereas only stroke atEntry and cardiac disease predicted death from all causes.

Elderly Women Have Lower Rates of Stroke, Cardiovascular Events, and Mortality After Hospitalization for Transient Ischemic Attack

Women have a better prognosis than men within the first year after hospital discharge for a TIA, according to risk adjustment for demographics, medical history, comorbidities, and prior hospitalizations.

Transient Ischemic Attacks Are More Than “Ministrokes”

These data from a large, multicenter, nonselected, observational study underscore the “not so benign” prognosis for TIA patients.

Patient Behavior Immediately After Transient Ischemic Attack According to Clinical Characteristics, Perception of the Event, and Predicted Risk of Stroke

Many patients delay seeking medical attention after a TIA irrespective of correct recognition of symptoms, although patients at higher predicted risk of stroke do act more quickly.

Long-Term Fatal Outcomes in Subjects With Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack: Fourteen-Year Follow-Up of the Systolic Hypertension in the Elderly Program

Treatment with a chlorthalidone-based antihypertensive regimen significantly reduced the risk of cardiovascular death after 14 years of extended follow-up in the SHEP cohort, and nearly two thirds of elderly persons with isolated systolic hypertension who experienced stroke died within 14 years.

Patterns and Predictors of Early Risk of Recurrence After Transient Ischemic Attack With Respect to Etiologic Subtypes

The risk of early recurrent stroke is highest in patients with LAA, which supports the need for urgent carotid and transcranial imaging for identifying those patients at highest risk of stroke recurrence.

Long‐term prognosis after transient ischemic attacks

It is demonstrated that the excess mortality over the whole period of observation, irrespective of the age and sex of the patients, can be characterized by a single figure expressing the slope of the curve obtained by semilogarithmic plotting of the ratios of observed to expected survival against time.
