FOTO-TIA: FOCUS ON THE EYE MAY DESCRIMINATE TIA, STROKE vs MIMICS

Good morning dear friends and fellow colleagues, Today I am updating the importance of retinal microvasculature which help in differentiate mild Stroke and Transient ischemic attack (TIA ) from mimic presentation. Any retinal microvascular finding increased the likelihood of having experienced a cerebrovascular event by almost 16% in a large prospective cohort study FOTO- TIA. Atherosclerosis risk in communities study(ARIC) showed participants with retinal microvascular changes were more likely to experience stroke or TIA over 6 years. With regards, Dr Sepuri Tirumala Devi.
