South Carolina Stroke Specialist Explains a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)

Interventional neuroradiologist at MUSC's stroke treatment center Dr. Aquilla “Quill” Turk discusses transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), their underlying causes and how they present. He explains the risk of more serious, acute stroke for a patient experiencing TIAs, and he notes treatments that have been utilized to date. Dr. Turk also describes the newer treatment method for a transient ischemic attack that involves stenting of the blood vessels in the brain to deal with narrowing of those vessels. He points out that very few medical centers in the country, MUSC being among them, have had significant use of these stents. Learn more about MUSC and its stroke treatment center today at
