Vascular dementia is created by conditions such as stroke that disrupt blood flow to the brain and lead to issues with memory, believing, and actions. Vascular dementia is the 2nd most common dementia diagnosis, after Alzheimer's disease, and can occur alone or together with another form of dementia. Vascular dementia is triggered by conditions that damage blood vessels in the brain and disturb the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. An individual's risk for dementia after stroke depends on the dimension and variety of strokes and the brain areas affected. A stroke is a disruption in or clog of the blood supply to any part of the brain. Symptoms of vascular dementia might develop progressively or might advance after each small stroke. Some people with vascular dementia might enhance for short durations, but decline after having more silent strokes. Symptoms of vascular dementia will depend on the areas of the brain that are wounded due to the stroke. Dementia is the name for issues with mental abilities brought on by progressive changes and damage in the brain. Vascular dementia tends to get even worse over time, although it's in some cases possible to slow it down. Vascular dementia can start unexpectedly or begin slowly in time. See a GP if you think you have early symptoms of dementia, particularly if you're over 65 years of age. Your GP can do some easy checks to search for the cause of your symptoms.
