The symptoms of a minor stroke, which is sometimes called a transient ischemic attack (TIA), can disappear in a few minutes. But a minor stroke or TIA is a warning that there may be bigger trouble brewing. Even a minor stroke should be carefully evaluated.

The researchers divided the patients into three groups based on the severity of their stroke: minor; mild/moderate; and moderate/severe.

The investigators found that patients with mild to moderate stroke benefited most from ultra-early care. Patients with minor strokes also benefited, but the odds of disability are already very low in these patients, they noted.

Patients with severe stroke didn’t see as much benefit from ultra-early treatment because they had extensive artery blockage, the study authors added.
