Vascular Dementia

Vascular dementia is a broad term describing problems with reasoning, judgment and memory that is caused by impaired blood flow to the brain. For example, you can develop vascular dementia after a stroke blocks an artery in your brain, or when other condition damage your blood vessels and reduce circulation. Factors that increase your risk of heart disease and stroke—high blood pressure, high cholesterol—also increase your risk of developing vascular dementia.
