Abstract

Fifty patients presenting clinically with TIAs were examined angiographically. Twenty one patients (42%) had no abnormality. Twenty patients (40%) had stenosis or occlusion in the MCA, ACA or intracranial carotid, whereas 11 (22%) had involvement of their extracranial internal carotid artery. Seven of the 28 CTs performed showed basal ganglia infarcts. This suggests that the cause for the TIA was an infarct in the vascular territory of a lenticulostriate artery.
