Grainger, K. and Mastaglia, F.L. (1976) Smoking, transient ischaemic attacks and stroke: A temporal association. Medical Journal of Australia, 2 (8). pp. 302-303.

Abstract

Two patients are described, both of whom demonstrate a temporal association between the clinical manifestations of cerebral ischaemia and smoking. A number of mechanisms through which smoking may influence cerebral blood flow and platelet function are discussed, and their relevance to the present cases is considered.
