It is an ischemic cerebrovascular disease.

In brief: Not really

Tia or transient ischemic attack is essential a stroke that resolves quickly .
.. As such it is cerebrovascular disease which is part of the cardiovascular system. Ischemic heart disease implies coronary artery disease -- that the arteries that supply your heart muscle are blocked. Check with your doctor for more information.
