Prevention of vascular and metabolic disease
GPs should be alert to symptoms of transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs) in those aged ≥45 years and they should assess these patients early in order to prioritise those needing urgent investigation and management. People at high risk should be questioned about symptoms of TIA to determine appropriate action. Adults with AF should have their absolute CVD risk assessed and the cause of their AF determined and treated according to cardiovascular and thromboembolic risk (II, B).
For further information about secondary prevention after stroke or TIA refer to the Stroke Foundation
Also refer to Chapter 15. Screening tests of unproven benefit.
