BACKGROUND The utility of poststroke cognitive status, namely dementia, cognitive impairment no dementia (CIND), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and no cognitive impairment (NCI), in predicting dementia has been previously examined. However, no studies to date have compared the ability of subtypes of MCI and CIND to predict dementia in a poststroke(More)
OBJECTIVES The safety and efficacy of early acetylcholinesterase inhibitors therapy in patients with cognitive impairment no dementia (CIND) after a cerebrovascular accident have not been examined. In this study, we investigated the safety and efficacy of rivastigmine in cognition, particularly executive function in patients with CIND because of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Our objective was to characterize the cognitive profile of patients with mild Alzheimer's disease (AD) and subcortical ischemic vascular dementia (SIVD) matched using a functional scale. METHODS AD and SIVD were diagnosed using the NINCDS-ADRDA and the criteria proposed by Erkinjuntti et al., respectively. The Clinical Dementia Rating(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is some evidence that poststroke dementia, cognitive impairment no dementia (CIND), and mild cognitive impairment predict for poor outcomes such as dementia, death, and institutionalization. However, few studies have examined the prognostic value of CIND, CIND severity, and domain impairments in a poststroke cohort. METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE While recent studies have examined neuroimaging correlates of post-stroke mild cognitive impairment (MCI), no studies have examined neuroimaging correlates of post-stroke subjective cognitive impairment (SCI). METHODS Consecutive patients with magnetic resonance imaging-confirmed acute lacunar strokes at a tertiary institute were(More)
