Description : Vascular dementia (VAD) accounts for one-third of all dementias in today''s aging population, second only to Alzheimer's disease (DAT). Fortunately, current imaging techniques allow clinicians to view specific lesions in the brain, classify them by etiology and anatomical location, and assess changes using serial imaging, while at the same time correlating those changes with signs and symptoms of VAD or DAT. In 17 chapters, this book summarizes new concepts concerning the epidemiology, etiology, risk factors, neuropathology and pathogenesis of VAD and DAT, and mixtures of the two, and reviews their multiple causes, including microvascular and hemorrhagic lesions, and ischemic and inflammatory changes affecting both white and gray matter.

Description : Vascular dementia is the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer's disease in older adults. The term refers to a group of syndromes caused by different mechanisms all resulting in vascular lesions in the brain. Early detection and accurate diagnosis are important, as vascular dementia is at least partially preventable. Risk factors for vascular dementia include hypertension, smoking, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. This book presents current research from across the globe in the study of vascular dementia, including GRK2 over-expression in the context of early Alzheimer disease pathogenesis; vitamin deficiencies and vascular dementia; biofluid markers as potential markers for vascular dementia; and the epidemiology of vascular dementia.

Description : Vascular dementia is one of the most common forms of mental deterioration for the elderly, second only to Alzheimer's disease. It should not be defined as a single disease, but rather as a group of syndromes that relate to different vascular mechanisms. This is one of the first books to be solely dedicated to the specific class of vascular dementia known as subcortical vascular dementia. The strict focus of the chapters give an depth review that will clarify many different aspects and give an unprecedented amount of detail about this clinical problem. Considering that vascular dementia can be prevented with early diagnosis, the research presented in this book will be important for both students and specialists of this important field.

Description : The increase in the numbers of individuals diagnosed with dementia has become an area of grave concern. The Office of National Statistics recently released figures that revealed that there were 533,253 deaths registered in England and Wales in 2017. This is a 1.6% increase from 2016. When all forms of dementia are considered figures shown that there has been an increase of 7.4% in deaths from all forms of dementia. Vascular dementia has increased by 5.3% and sadly, those being diagnosed with Alzheimer's have increased by 13.9%.Yet, just over one hundred years ago, Alzheimer's disease symptoms had not been seen in patients nor had beta amyloid plaques, one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease, identified in autopsies.The author takes us on a journey through our ever evolving diets and shows us how our apparently 'healthy' diets and lifestyles are risk factors for the dementias and that the disease states will continue not only to progress rapidly but increase in numbers if we don't change our eating habits. She explains the different characteristics of each form of dementia and how the symptoms and underlying causes can begin to be addressed by dietary changes; dietary changes that are long overdue if we are to curb the epidemic of dementia.

Description : Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VaD) are commonly viewed as the first and second most common types of dementia, respectively. The traditional paradigm has been to view and treat each illness as a separate entity with a separate pathophysiology. However, clinical and pathological studies suggest that the boundary separating AD and VaD, as well as their mild cognitive impairment (MCI) analogs, is not well defined. Thus, there is increased interest in viewing these diseases along a spectrum because of the significant overlap in the characterization and diagnosis of AD, VaD, and MCI. The focus of this edited volume is to examine how AD and VaD, as well as their MCI analogs, are best viewed as a heterogeneous, intersecting, if not a continuous disease state rather than separate, distinct entities. This book examines this approach by providing empirically based evidence, reviews of the literature, and chapters by key leaders in the field and will be of interest to clinical neuropsychologists and anyone studying or treating dementia in its many forms.

Description : Dementia is defined from perspectives of cognitive decrement, functional impairment, and neuropathology. With the "graying" of the U.S. population, the syndrome is being seen with increasing frequency. The different types of dementia have various causes, and it can be difficult for clinicians to distinguish among these disorders. In Dementia: Presentations, Differential Diagnosis, and Nosology, V. Olga B. Emery, Ph.D., and Thomas E. Oxman, M.D., bring together a group of medical authorities--including many who have done seminal research in this field--to discuss dementing disorders and explain their differential diagnosis. All the chapters present data from historical and current literature as well as from the authors' clinical experiences. Current classification systems are evaluated and modified to better account for common presentations of dementia. Presenting the viewpoints of many of the leading figures in a field that is becoming of increasing interest to the U.S. medical community, Dementia: Presentations, Differential Diagnosis, and Nosology provides much information that has not previously been available. It will be of interest to geriatricians, gerontologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and neurologists.

Description : Widely acknowledged as one of the most challenging aspects of dealing with an aging population, the increasing prevalence of cognitive decline in the elderly presents the clinician with a variety of complex therapeutic problems. Alzheimer's disease and other dementias vary in their onset and progression, as do patients in their responsiveness to treatment. In this book, leading experts review the current and evolving therapeutic options, including anti-amyloid therapies, neuroprotective strategies, and symptomatic treatments (both pharmacological and non-pharmacological). Also included are updates on several recent and on-going clinical trials, the development of new biomarkers to aid recognition of disease and earlier intervention, and a discussion of the pharmacoeconomics of treating dementia.

Description : Objectives:The purpose of the study was to analyze the rates of dementias, including those of dementia in Alzheimer disease and vascular dementia, in the Republic of Belarus. Background:The percentage of older people in Belarus in increasing, resulting in growing number of reported cases of mental diseases, in particular with dementias.Materials and Methods:National statistical data for 2017 were used to obtain absolute numbers of cases and to calculate the occurrence rates (per 100,000 people).Results and Conclusions:By the end of 2017, 10,142 people in Belarus were registered as having dementia and requiring regular supervision by the doctor, including 1,609 people (15.9%) with dementia in Alzheimer disease and 4,612 people (45.5%) with vascular dementia. The total occurrence of dementia was 202.5 per 100,000 people, including 28.3 per 100,000 people for dementia in Alzheimer disease and 98.5 per 100,000 people for vascular dementia. The rate of hospitalization with dementias was 4.6 per 10 thousand population, including 0.6 per 10 thousand for dementia in Alzheimer disease and 2.2 per 10 thousand for vascular dementia.The above results demonstrate the prevalence of vascular dementia over the dementia in Alzheimer disease in the overall pattern of dementias in population of Belarus.The obtained data show the urgent need for improvement of diagnostic methods to differentiate between the dementia types and prevent the cerebrovascular diseases.

Yes, without doubt the name Dementia represent a medical term used to refer to a number of symptoms of cognitive degeneration such as forgetfulness which moderates a person's ability to perform everyday undertakings. However, the diagnostic procedure begins with your health practitioner evaluating your medical history, as well as that of your parents, siblings, and grandparents. Yes, I must say here that other possible causes of memory impairment cannot be ruled out. However, a physical examination and blood tests will help eliminate these possibilities. Besides that, a cognitive test may also be administered, in which the patient is asked to perform simple memory processing tasks. The patient may then be referred for more complex medical screenings if need arises. As a matter of fact, several types of brain imaging tests, such as CAT scans, MRIs, and PET scans, are usually used to rule out strokes or tumors. The truth is that Dementia can also be caused by a series of strokes so small as to be undetected. Moreover, it also known that Depression can also cause memory lapses. Yes, among many others, Parkinson's disease, a degenerative nerve disorder, can also be a cause of dementia. Besides, some medications, especially in older patients, can cause fuzzy thinking and memory loss. Even a fever or a head injury can result in memory problems, as can dehydration or malnutrition. Late-stage syphilis is yet another cause of dementia. However, with blood tests the practitioners can help eliminate these and other possible causes of memory loss, such as thyroid disorders or vitamin deficiencies. To be thorough, more extensive neuropsychological testing may be performed on the patient. These tests evaluate the patient's memory, problem-solving abilities, attention span and skills involving numbers and language. Yes, as a matter of fact, Psychological tests can also be useful in diagnosing Alzheimer's disease.

Description : Vascular dementia, caused by multiple small strokes, is the second commonest cause of dementia behind Alzheimer's disease. In recent years there has been a radical reappraisal of the concept of vascular dementia and a move away from an Alzheimer-based diagnostic paradigm towards one more appropriately tailored for vascular disease. Vascular Cognitive Impairment presents a new definition for this class of cerebrovascular process with an emphasis on early detection, prompt treatment and the prevention of disease progression. Vascular Cognitive Impairment: Preventable Dementia presents an overview of the current state of our knowledge in this field. It reviews the historical background, prevalence, risk factors and economic consequences of the condition. In addition, the book summarises our knowledge of the pathological process, describing insight derived from genetic and imaging studies, before examining opportunities for early diagnosis, prevention and the options for management, both now, and as a result of ongoing clinical trials. With contributions from an expert team of international contributors, this book provides a comprehensive summary of the state-of-the-art in this field, providing a framework for a new understanding of a complex, disabling but Preventable condition.

Description : Vascular cognitive impairment is the second most common cause of dementia after Alzheimer's disease and is expected to grow in prevalence with the aging global population. The purpose of this authoritative book is to give a broad clinical perspective on vascular cognitive impairment and thus create a foundation for the implementation of good dementia care. The book focuses on pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. It demonstrates the underlying causes of the disorder, such as the manner in which vascular risk-factors influence the onset of vascular cognitive impairment. The concept of mixed forms of vascular dementia, Alzheimer's dementia and other vascular diseases is discussed as well as the influence of vascular changes with regard to the onset of Alzheimer's disease. The detailed section on pathophysiology will enhance clinicians' understanding of this complex disorder. Finally there is a section on pharmacological and neuropsychological treatment of cognitive and psychiatric symptoms.
