By definition TIA is any transient neurological deficit that is completely reversed in less than 24 hours, although most of them last few minutes.

Classic definition of TIA is neurologic deficit for up to 24 hours. In reality, TIA rarely lasts more than an hour. Tias can happen several times in 24 hours as well.
