What Is a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)?


A transient ischemic attack (TIA), also called a mini-stroke, occurs when blood flow to part of the brain stops for a short period of time.

While a TIA can mimic the symptoms of a stroke, the symptoms of a TIA last only a few minutes at most — the average length of a TIA is about one minute.

Additionally, unlike a stroke, most TIAs don’t cause permanent damage.

However, a TIA should be taken seriously.
