Transient ischemic attack (TIA) belongs to the category of cerebrovascular disease stroke, is a subtype of ischemic cerebrovascular disease, stroke incidence is very high, and is also an important cause of population death. The occurrence of TIA has a great relationship with vascular abnormalities, the formation of vascular plaque makes the blood vessels hardening and narrowing, and then leads to the occurrence of transient cerebral ischemia.Modern studies have found that the abnormal lipid metabolism is closely related to the occurrence of TIA. Traditional Chinese medicine treats TIA from the "evil gas of phlegm and blood stasis". In combination, the "evil gas of phlegm and blood stasis" is related to the abnormal lipid metabolism, which also confirms that the drugs for reducing phlegm and blood stasis and turbidity can inhibit the metabolic factors of TIA and play a role in preventing and preventing the disease before it is diagnosed.Western medicine's targeted regulation of abnormal lipid metabolism and Chinese medicine's lipid-regulating and pulse-softening therapy may have certain modern research significance.
