Vascular cognitive impairment in clinical practice

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Wahlund Lars-Olof, Erkinjuntti Timo, Gauthier Serge

Couverture de l’ouvrage Vascular cognitive impairment in clinical practice
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. Presents detailed information on treatment - practical advice on the management of patients with vascular cognitive impairment. Discusses the scientific background of vessel-dependent cognitive impairment - gives the reader insight into how vascular disease affects cognitive functioning.
