Treatment of vascular risk factors is associated with slower decline in Alzheimer disease
Background: There is growing evidence that vascular risk factors (VRF) contribute to cognitive decline. Whether their treatment can slow down the progression of Alzheimer disease (AD) remains unsettled. The aim of this observational study was to evaluate whether the treatment of VRF is associated with a slower cognitive decline in patients who have AD without […]
Akatinol memantine in patients with vascular cognitive disorders
Treatment of cognitive disorders developed in cerebrovascular pathology is an actual medical problem. Of great importance is the timed diagnosis of these changes in the earlier phases of the development of cognitive deficit as well as adequate therapy that can delay and prevent the development of such complication as dementia. Pathogenetic mechanisms of cognitive disorders […]
Vascular care in patients with Alzheimer’s disease with cerebrovascular lesions-a randomized clinical trial
Objectives: To investigate whether vascular care slows dementia progression in patients with Alzheimer’s disease with cerebrovascular lesions on neuroimaging.; Design: Multicenter randomized controlled clinical trial with 2-year follow-up.; Setting: Neurological and geriatric outpatient clinics in 10 Dutch hospitals: three academic, five teaching, and two midsize community hospitals.; Participants: One hundred thirty community-dwelling patients with mild […]
Adaptive cognitive testing in cerebrovascular disease and vascular dementia
Background/aims: To examine whether brevity can be combined with precision in measuring global cognitive ability in patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD) or vascular dementia (VaD). Longer tests (e.g. the CAMCOG) are precise but inefficient, whereas brief tests (e.g. the MMSE) are efficient but imprecise.; Methods: A simulated computerized adaptive testing (CAT) algorithm using existing CAMCOG […]
