Perhaps one of the biggest warning signs of stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a brief and sudden episode of stroke-like symptoms. The attack can last less than a minute or in rare cases, up to four hours. This mini stroke does not cause permanent damage, but patients should seek medical attention immediately. The causes of transient ischemic attack are the same as what may cause a stroke. In fact, about one third of the patients who experience TIA will then suffer a stroke in the following year.
