The first comprehensive and authoritative book covering the basis for the joint prevention of stroke and the management, delay, or prevention of some dementias. Engaging with the concept of cerebrovascular disease as asymptomatic, with overwhelming evidence that major dementias involve a vascular component, ranging from 60 per cent in frontotemporal dementia to 80 per cent in Alzheimer disease - doubling the chances of silent brain pathology manifesting as dementia. Beginning with a review of the basics, describing typical patients and presentations and providing clear guidelines in diagnoses, management, and prevention, this vital guide is invaluable for physicians dealing with cognitive impairments, including family physicians, psychiatrists, internists, geriatricians and neurologists, worldwide. This book provides a new, coherent and promising approach, filling the gap between what is known and what is applied, offering a great opportunity for appropriate interventions and treatments that make a difference. Improving outcomes, beginning now.Read more
