X HAND CONTROL FACE CONTROL SPEECH READING SIGHT ·. HEARING Control »nt«n of brain are shown in diagram (above). Small stroke can affect just about any of them. come more often if untreated and remain for longer periods. These repented small strokes may foreshadow a big stroke. Often, unfortunately, the small stroke remains undiag- nosecl. A Memphis doctor tells of a local minister who suffered loss of memory every so often and became increasingly irritable. He was moved from parish to parish in the hope that somehow he would "snap out of it." Finally, a doctor diagnosed his trouble as a series of small strokes. The minister was put on medication and has been free of symptoms for the past three years. This case illustrates a basic need: if one of your relatives, friends or business associates exhibits the signs of small stroke, you should gel him to go to a doctor promptly. Who are the victims of small strokes? There is no clear answer, but experts believe that persons over 40 get them more often than younger persons; that the tense, harried, overweight individual is vulnerable to the disorder. How are small strokes treated? When they are diagnosed accurately, the doctor is likely to prescribe life-long use of a family of drugs called anticoagulants, already widely prescribed for heart patients. Cost of Treatment These drugs, which should be given only to carefully selected patients, can prevent further clots from forming. Dr. Irving Wright of the Cornel! University Medical Center, New York, calls use of anticoagulant therapy "the most significant advance" in the treatment of small strokes. His view is held by doctors at medical centers from Maine to California. Anticoagulants are prescription drugs. Widely used are two, Dicumarol and Coumadin, both of which can be taken by mouth. They cost the patient 50 cents a week or less. Thus, treatment that may prevent serious disability adds up to less than the patient spends weekly on bus fare. · Warning signals of small strokes Here are the symptoms of small stroke. They may last only a few minutes. If they persist longer than a few Iwttrs, doctors beliei'e r a big stroke may be imminent.
