ps. Fugax is definitely Latin; amaurosis is Greek imported into Latin.

This article needs some serious revision! Amaurosis fugax is painless, monocular loss of vision, which may be total or sectorial. Therefore, general hypotension and positive acceleration should not be included as causes because these things would cause binocular loss of vision. I am going to remove them, and also reorganize the content. Also, please expect many more in-text citations over the next few days. Thank you for your patience! Kilbad 20:55, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

I have since added much more content and citations. However, this article is still extremely inadequate/incomplete. I will continue to work on it in the coming days. Kilbad 20:45, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Peer reviewlet[edit]

Kilbad (talk · contribs) left a message on Wikipedia:WikiProject Medicine/Assessment requesting a peer review. I direct the reader to a previous peer review by Colin (talk · contribs) on this page. Many of Colin's comments are still applicable. For instance, WP:MEDMOS should be applied to this article with regards to the section headers. The MOS in general could be applied with regards to bullet points. I also note that the numerous references are not formatted with {{cite journal}}. The references in general are mostly primary sources - the average reader will not benefit at all from knowing that once in the history of mankind someone found PAN as a cause for amaurosis fugax. Hope this helps. I'm happy to assist in case of any further issues. JFW | T@lk 22:09, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
