Poststroke dementia, Vascular Dementia, Cognitive Impairment


Poststroke dementia is a dementia which is detected or occurred after acute stroke. The causes of poststroke dementia are VaD, Alzheimer’s disease or mixed dementia. About 10% of stroke patients have poststroke dementia which increased morbidity and mortality after stroke. So, early recognition and management were very important.
