Overview

A multidisciplinary survey of our current understanding of the biological and clinical aspects of vascular disease. The authors describe its basic mechanisms, its clinical characteristics, its pharmacological management, and the use of neuroimaging methods to investigate it. The complex relationship between VaD and AD is also fully explored with chapters on how these processes interact and how one disease may lower the threshold for clinical expression of the other.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This book is an update on the link between cerebrovascular disease and dementia. … The book has several strengths. … The diagrams, images, and tables are generally thoughtful. … Overall, Vascular Dementia is a valuable textbook. After reviewing it, I felt as if I had been brought up to date on a variety of topics related to the disorder … . I would recommend the book to geriatricians, internists, and neurologists who care for elderly patients as well as to clinical researchers in geriatric neurology." (Carol F. Lippa, New England Journal of Medicine, June, 2005)
