Am Fam Physician. 2012 Nov 1;86(9):802.
In the CME Quiz (September 15, 2012, page 509), question 6 (page 510) pertaining to the article “Transient Ischemic Attack: Part II. Risk Factor Modification and Treatment” (page 527) was ambiguous and listed incorrect answers in the answer box (page 576). The case scenario described in the question should have more clearly indicated that the patient was at low risk of stroke, which would make answer C (hospitalization) an incorrect answer. The question should have read: “A 78-year-old man presents to the emergency department with recent symptoms suggestive of transient ischemic attack. His lipid levels are normal, and brain magnetic resonance imaging shows no ischemia. Which of the following interventions are recommended for this patient?” The answers should have been: A (aspirin) and B (statin therapy). The online version of the quiz has been corrected.
