Date d'édition : 2003

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Vascular dementia, caused by multiple small strokes, is the second commonest cause of dementia behind Alzheimer s disease. In recent years there has been a radical reappraisal of the concept of vascular dementia and a move away from an Alzheimer-based diagnostic paradigm towards one more appropriately tailored for vascular disease. Vascular Cognitive Impairment presents a new definition for this class of cerebrovascular process with an emphasis on early detection, prompt treatment and the prevention of disease progression. Vascular Cognitive Impairment: Preventable Dementia presents an overview of the current state of our knowledge in this field. It reviews the historical background, prevalence, risk factors and economic consequences of the condition. In addition, the book summarises our knowledge of the pathological process, describing insight derived from genetic and imaging studies, before examining opportunities for early diagnosis, prevention and the options for management, both now, and as a result of ongoing clinical trials. With contributions from an expert team of international contributors, this book provides a comprehensive summary of the state-of-the-art in this field, providing a framework for a new understanding of a complex, disabling but Preventable condition.

Critique: ...an excellent and detailed overview of the vascular dementias...an important reference source for those working across health care of the elderly - both in mental health and in general medicine. ( Signpost, Vol 11, No 3)

There is no doubt that there is increasing awareness of the implications of the role of cerebrovascular disease in the genesis of dementia (whoops, cognitive impairment), and the editors ably bring together an important contribution to the field. Everyone, whether they be a neurologist, an old age psychiatrist, a geriatrician, a clinical nurse specialist, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist, or a social worker, would benefit from being aware of the implications of this disorder. ( Bulletin of the Northwest Dementia Centre)

An excellent review of vascular dementia. ( Doody's Journal)
