Overview

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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

A new title signals the complete change of approach and the many new imaging techniques since the 1988 . Neurologists and related professionals summarize for health care providers the current state of knowledge on preventing and treating dementia caused by vascular disorders, a growing problem as the population ages. New concepts concerning epidemiology, etiology, risk factors, neuropathology, pathogenesis, microvascular and hemorrhagic lesion, and ischemic and inflammatory changes are among the topics.
