- A transient ischemic attack (TIA) happens when blood flow to part of the brain is blocked or reduced , often by a blood clot. After a short time, blood flows again and the symptoms go away. With a stroke, the blood flow stays blocked, and the brain has permanent damage.
Comorbid Rule exception
Regular comorbid rules exception: Strokes (of any sort, ischemic or hemorrhagic) -- code even resolved strokes with no current sequelae as comorbid diagnoses. If a patient has a past history of stroke, use the regular stroke codes to identify this, even if the patient does not have any residual deficits we will now capture ANY past history of stroke. This is contrary to the usual rules about Comorbid_Diagnosis#When_not_to_code_a_dx_at_all.
