Small Study Ties TIAs To Increased Risk Of PTSD

HealthDay (10/3, Reinberg) reports that according to the results of a 108-patient study published online Oct. 2 in the journal Stroke, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) may increase the “risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).” The study found that nearly a third of patients who had a TIA “developed symptoms of PTSD, including depression, anxiety and reduced quality of life.” The NPR (10/3, Shute) “Shots” blog also covers the study.
