Abstract

Stroke is an important public health problem worldwide. Those at high risk of stroke may be at high risk of cognitive impairment and dementia after stroke. Modifiable cardiovascular risk factors in midlife including hypertension, alcohol use, cigarette smoking, and certain dietary factors may be important targets for prevention of vascular causes of cognitive impairment. These same types of factors may also be associated with Alzheimer disease. Better control of cardiovascular disease risk factors might lead to delay or prevention of vascular dementia and Alzheimer disease.
