Understanding Mini Strokes

Last updated 4 years ago

Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), also known as mini strokes, cause the same symptoms as other types of strokes, but resolve within a few minutes to a few hours. They are typically caused by blood clots.

Watch this video to see what a mini stroke looks like. Although the symptoms may clear on their own, TIAs should be taken as seriously as major strokes and can cause the same kind of damage. Warning signs of a mini stroke include dizziness, confusion, and slurred speech.
