Incidence of stroke after tia

Common Questions and Answers about Incidence of stroke after tia


Avatar n tn it depends on the type of ablation. right sided ablations have a very low incidence of stroke. Left sided ablation like atrial fibrillation or left ventricular tachycardia carry a risk of about 1%. Ask your doctor what the risk is for your specific type of ablation. It would be easier to answer if knew what type of ablation.

Avatar n tn html PEGASYS can cause serious side effects, such as mental health problems and suicide, heart problems, stroke or symptoms of a stroke, new or worsening autoimmune problems, and infections. Some of these side effects may cause death. Tell your healthcare provider right away if your loved one has any of these symptoms while taking their treatment with PEGASYS.
Avatar f tn For TIA the diagnostic challenge is greater, and the ‘mimic’ rate higher (and more varied), because there is no definitive diagnostic test. TIA heralds a high risk of early ischaemic stroke, and in many cases the stroke can be prevented if the cause is identified," http://pn.bmj.
Avatar n tn can a stroke victim become violent or unpredicdable after having a stroke also become more demanding ?
Avatar n tn and weigh 125 lbs about a year after having a child. I seriously think I had a TIA/Stroke and was misdiagnosed. Does anyone know what kind of doctor I need to go to and how long after a stroke and they still tell if you had one? Please help me because I still have effects from this being trouble speaking and forgetfullness.
Avatar n tn I am a 49 yr old female, who smokes, no Hypertension or diabetes, I have had all symptoms of Stroke/TIA, I had radiating pain down L arm, numbing/tingling up L side of face, profuse sweating, dizziness, I also had slight pain across jaw, no weakness though, this has happened more than one time, all of my test come out negative, is that normal for a TIA that nothing shows? I am afraid that when or if I have a stroke, that will be it since everything comes up negative.
Avatar f tn The neurologist prescribed it after he had TIA number of times. He used to get seizures like symptoms and loose his consciousness. He was bedridden and stopped walking completely. Now, he is up on his feet and doing his regular work after regular physiotherapy. At first, he had trigeminal neuralgia and he was on carbamezapine 150mg twice daily and then 300mg twice daily. I just need to know how long he has to be on Citilin. Is it a safe drug to be used for long time?
Avatar f tn Make sure you and everyone that is around your dad know the signs of a stroke because acting quickly when a person has a stroke can save his life! Good luck to you!
Avatar n tn it comes from a feeling of disconnection to my life and a sense of feeling kinda lost, with a kind of apathy too, I think. I need to be writing essays but just don't seem to be able to concentrate on anything and just find myself wondering the moment I am sitting in a darkened room with my computer on a lovely bright sunny day outside with anxiety levels through the roof and a feeling of disconnection to everybody. This is very unlike me, opposite, in fact.
Avatar f tn Thank you for the response Dr. Sharma. He did experience a tia within 24 hours of surgery that was recognized by the MRI when he went back to the hospital. The only symptoms he's experiencing right now are headache, neck pain and continued weakness in the affected arm. The surgeon relayed that these symptoms are normal after surgery and that it is highly unlikely that he would suffer another tia or stroke due to the occlusion.
Avatar m tn An ischemic stroke is the most common kind of stroke (over 80% of strokes being ischemic). An ischemic stroke is caused when circulation is blocked to the brain. That can be caused by plaque in the vessel linings, or blood clots traveling to the brain, or stenosis (narrowing) of the vessels feeding the barin.. A TIA, or transient ischemic attack, or "mini stroke" is a stroke like occurrence that usually does not result in any permanent damage.
Avatar n tn I only recall the very beginning of it/or the actual TIA starting (had trouble talking, walkingbut then the rest of the day except for tiny bits and pieces are gone from my memory. I had a EEG to see if it was some sort of seizure and a U/S of my Carotoid artery. The EEG was fine. The U/S showed some plaque but no blockages. My father's side of the family has a very strong history of strokes and heart attacks. My dad died at 63, grandfather at 59, etc. I am 56.
Avatar f tn Could you tell me exactly what symptoms you had? My doctor seems to think it wasn't a stroke. He said nothing of a TIA, so now I am confused of what exactly happened to me that day. They did a CT scan of the brain (this came back normal), then they did an MRI of the brain and this came back clear as well. I am scared because I haven't a clue as to what happened to me that day. Those were all of the symptoms of a TIA and they are saying it wasn't one.
Avatar m tn This is serious stuff and quite honestly, my symptoms have improved but not gone away. 10% of TIA victims go on to have a major stroke within 90 days (1 in 10), and you now have a 35 to 40% chance of having a major stroke. I don't want to scare you, but you need to press the issue with your Doctor.
Avatar f tn Has your mom tried to get copies of your dad's medical records? My father-in-law died and when my husband needed to know about his father's medical history, we were able to get copies of the records. That might give you the information you need to share with your doctor. If you don't mind my asking, how do you know you had a TIA? I'm going for an MRI tomorrow to rule out stroke/TIA because of a visual problem and on a separate occasion, arm weakness.
Avatar n tn The chance of having a stroke approximately doubles for each decade of life after age 55, heredity, race, gender, history of previous TIA or stroke, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, poor physical activity, poor diet, hyperlipidemia etc. I would suggest that you visit a urologist and rule out all the risk factors listed above and take appropriate treatment. Best.
4837124 tn?1359906493 High blood pressure and family history of stroke are major risk for TIAs and stroke. And TIAs are a warning sign that stroke may indeed occur. It is highly recommended that you go for regular follow-up with your attending physician for proper evaluation and management of risk factors to prevent any recurrence of stroke. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn My mother frequently gets the symptoms of TIAs. Actually, I believe she has a TIA every month, and she seems to be getting worse. Every month it never fails to come back as I watch my mother lose balance, slur her words, and act complete gone. The whole week of that TIA is a struggle, and as soon as she seems to be "recovering" she happens to experience more TIA symptoms. What can I expect?
Avatar n tn Recently I was at my friends house for a social gathering and I experienced what I thought at the time was a mini stroke. Symptoms appeared out of nowhere and included drooping of facial muscles on left side of face, slurring and difficulty forming sentences, chest pain, visual hallucinations (including but not limited to room breathing i.e lights getting brighter and dimmer), as well as numbness of my limbs and face and trouble standing/dizziness.
Avatar f tn Your husband needs to see a neurologist because it sounds like he has had a stroke. The TIA diagnosis may have been wrong. All tests being clear just means they have not found the real reason yet. This forum will not be able to diagnose it, we can only give our opinions based on our experience.
Avatar f tn But people benefit most from the surgery if it is done within 2 weeks of the stroke or TIA. Delaying surgery longer than 2 weeks increases the risk for stroke, because people are more likely to have a stroke in the first few days and weeks after a first stroke or a TIA. The likelihood of complications from carotid endarterectomy varies, depending on the skill and experience of the surgeon.
