The TIA is likely due to an embolic clot formed in his left atrial appendage that broke off after converting back to normal sinus rhythm from what may have been up diagnosed and asymptomatic episode of either paroxysmal or possibly persistent atrial fibrillation. Or, perhaps from ischemia in one or both of his carotid arteries possibly due to progression of arteriosclerosis and plaque formation there? ... In any event those are the two most likely origins for his TIA but not the only possibility... Nevertheless, they need to find out which it is to plan best preventative treatment to avoid a more serious stroke down the road.
