NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Top New York City Cardiologist Dr. Steven Reisman to be Featured on Inside Edition to Discuss Mini-Strokes and Strokes

The New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center announced today Dr. Steven Reisman, a New York City Cardiologist, is being featured on an episode of Inside Edition discussing mini-strokes and strokes in relation to actor Frankie Muniz of Malcolm in the Middle who is recovering from a mini-stroke.

"A mini-stroke is temporary.  The key word is temporary" said Dr. Steven Reisman, the Director of the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center. "It comes and it goes within several hours. It's really a warning sign. A full stroke is usually more permanent damage that can last, that can be severe or mild or moderate and it doesn't go away quickly".

A mini-stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) occurs when there is a lack of blood flow to the brain.It stops for a brief period of time and usually the symptoms occur for one to two hours and possibly up to 24 hours. A TIA is a warning sign that a true stroke may occur and it is a medical emergency and one should call 911 or immediately go to the hospital for preventative diagnostic evaluation.

A stroke is a more serious incident that occurs when there is a lack of blood flow to the brain. If this happens brain cells can die and this can cause permanent damage. Symptoms of a stroke depend on what part of the brain is damaged and these can develop suddenly without warning. The symptoms can include headache, changes in alertness, changes in sensation, changes of motion of different parts of the body, sudden confusion or loss of memory, muscle weakness, problem with eye sight and difficulty speaking. The number one risk factor leading to a stroke is high blood pressure. The other risk factors can include atrial fibrillation (an abnormal heart rhythm), diabetes, family history of a stroke and high cholesterol.

The New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center advocates the early detection of risk factors before stroke including the early detection of high blood pressure which is known as the silent killer. This is done by use of an advanced automatic device for the diagnosis of high blood pressure. In addition, the use of echocardiography and ultrasound evaluation of the carotid arteries to detect risk for stroke is an important part of early prevention.
