Treatments to reduce risk of stroke following a transient ischemic attack (TIA)

Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a frequent precursor to stroke. Studies of modern treatments (e.g., carotid endarterectomy and carotid artery stenting) do not consider TIA as an indicator for treatment, nor which treatments may be more effective following a TIA. All of Us provides a unique opportunity to not only examine the interaction between TIA and treatment to prevent subsequent strokes, but also to suggest characteristics of people who benefit most from each treatment.
