Among participants in the Framingham Heart Study from 1948-2017

In this population-based cohort study from 1948-2017, the estimated crude TIA incidence was 1.19/1000 person-years, the risk of stroke was significantly greater after TIA compared with matched control participants who did not have a TIA (adjusted hazard ratio, 4.37), and the risk of stroke within 90 days after TIA was significantly lower in the most recent epoch from 2000-2017 compared with an earlier period from 1948-1985 (hazard ratio, 0.32).
