When discussing dementia, the medical literature tends to focus on Alzheimer's disease, leaving other dementias, such as those relating to cerebrovascular disease, somewhat neglected, despite being a common cause of cognitive decline in later life. However, in recent years there has been a remarkable transformation in our knowledge about the role of vascular factors in cognitive decline and dementia. It is now recognized that cerebrovascular disease influences clinical expression of cognitive and non cognitive features in a variety of cognitive disorders, including Alzheimer's disease itself. Cerebrovascular Disease, Cognitive Impairment and Dementia reviews what is now known about the relationship between cerebrovascular disease and dementia. It describes new knowledge of how vascular processes interact with neuro-degenerative ones, and how both appear to be risk factors for the other. The book contains contributions from leading international experts and covers epidemiology, diagnosis, clinical features, investigations (including neuroimaging), management, and service and caregiver issues.The second edition of this pioneering text is completely revised and emphasizes the primary and secondary prevention of cerebrovascular disease and the treatment of cognitive impairment. A truly comprehensive yet accessible text which puts basic research findings in a clinically relevant context, this book will appeal to psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, allied health professionals, and others involved in the care of patients with cognitive impairment and dementia.
