Cognitive impairment in lacunar strokes
2014 (English)In: European Neurological Review, ISSN 1758-3837, Vol. 9, no 1, 64-67 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Vascular cognitive impairment is closely related to stroke. Each condition is a risk factor for the other. Cognitive impairment is a symptom that makes it difficult for a stroke patient to live at home. In this review paper, different types of vascular cognitive impairment are discussed, with emphasis on cognitive impairment related to lacunar strokes (LACS). Symptoms, diagnostics, epidemiology, treatment, and prognosis are surveyed. LACS are often associated with leukoaraiosis, which is related to subcortical ischemic vascular dementia. Even if LACS often are mild, they may therefore be associated with cognitive impairment on longer term.
