Clinical and arteriographic comparison of amaurosis fugax with hemispheric transient ischemic attacks.
Eighty-seven patients with either amaurosis fugax (40 patients) or hemispheric transient ischemic attacks (47 patients) were studied to determine whether the two symptom groups could be differentiated clinically and arteriographically. Clinical data assessed were age of patient, incidence of cardiac disease, and presence of claudication, hypertension, diabetes, and carotid bruits. Contrary to a prior report, our results indicate no significant difference between the 2 patient groups based on clinical and arteriographic findings.
