Condition(s) targeted: Ischemic Attack, Transient

Phase: N/A

Status: Recruiting

Sponsored by: Capital Medical University

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Qi Bi, Study Chair, Affiliation: Dept. of Neurology, Beijing Anzhen Hospital, Capital Medical University


The purpose of this study is to determine whether the ABCD2 score can be used in patients with transient ischemic attack, admitted to Beijing anzhen hospital, to evaluate the prognosis, risk factor of those patients.

Clinical Details

Official title: Phase 1 of Clinical Trial of Risk Factor, Prognosis, Imaging and Standard Management of Transient Ischemic Attack.

Study design: Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary outcome: end points are defined as follow: transient ischemic attack, stroke, angina, myocardial infraction, peripheral vascular disease, intracerebral hemorrhage and other vascular death.

Detailed description: The feasibility of risk stratification of patients with acute transient ischemic attack admitted to Beijing anzhen hospital by the ABCD2 score system is yet to be determined. The aim of this paper was to evaluate and validate the short-term prognosis of TIA patients in Peking area using this new score system.


Minimum age: N/A. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Every patient admitted to Beijing anzhen hospital with transient ischemic attack will

be enrolled in this study, from 06/2007 to 12/2008. duration of the symptom not larger than 1 hour.

- Magnetic resonance imaging negative on DWI(no fresh infarction).

- Old infarction or not the criminal infarction.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients with hemorrhage stroke were excluded.
