Objective: Vascular dementia (VaD) and Alzheimer disease with cerebrovascular disease (AD+CVD) are the leading causes of dementia after Alzheimer disease alone (AD). Little is known about the progression of either VaD or AD+CVD. The aim of this study was to compare demographic features, cognitive decline and survival of patients with VaD, AD+CVD and AD alone attending a memory clinic. Methods: This study included 970 patients who were followed at the Lille-Bailleul memory clinic, France… 
Atherosclerosis, Hypertension, and Diabetes in Alzheimer's Disease, Vascular Dementia, and Mixed Dementia: Prevalence and Presentation.
TLDR
AD and VaD exhibit such different profiles of organ and vascular damage as well as of hypertension and DM that they clearly point toward different pathogenic origin with low likelihood of shared risk factors.
[Clinical and neuropsychological features of Alzheimer's disease in the combination with cerebrovascular disease].
TLDR
The authors propose the approaches to the differential diagnosis of MD that allow to determine the main directions of treatment more precisely and to predict disease course.
Differences in Rate of Cognitive Decline and Caregiver Burden between Alzheimer's Disease and Vascular Dementia: a Retrospective Study.
TLDR
Results indicated that the natural history of MMSE changes in AD patients differed significantly from that of patients with VaD, with AD patients showing more cognitive decline over time.
Diabetes is associated with a slower rate of cognitive decline in Alzheimer disease
TLDR
In a cohort of community-dwelling patients with Alzheimer disease (AD), the presence of diabetes mellitus (DM) was associated with a lower rate of cognitive decline.
Treatment of vascular risk factors is associated with slower decline in Alzheimer disease
TLDR
In patients who have Alzheimer disease without CVD, treatment of vascular risk factors (VRF) is associated with a slower decline in Mini-Mental State Examination score, and Randomized controlled trials are needed to confirm this association, but data suggest that dementia should not prevent treatment of VRF.
[Neuropsychological features of mixed Alzheimer's and vascular dementia].
TLDR
The assessment of neuropsychological functions should be used for differential diagnosis of different forms of late-onset dementia and may help in understanding of the contribution of risk vascular factors to the development of dementia.
Rivastigmine for vascular cognitive impairment.
TLDR
The efficacy of rivastigmine compared with placebo in the treatment of people with vascular cognitive impairment (VCI), vascular dementia or mixed dementia was assessed and no significant difference was found on any outcome measure relevant to cognition, neuropsychiatric symptoms, function or global rating.
Study protocol on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders: focus on clinical and imaging predictive markers in co-existing lesions
TLDR
This study aims at identifying the best combination of markers (clinical, neuropsychological, MRI, SPECT-DaTscan®, PET and CSF) to predict disability progression in elderly patients presenting coexisting patterns.

Comparative evolution of Alzheimer disease, vascular dementia, and mixed dementia.
TLDR
Alzheimer disease, VaD, and mixed dementia evolve similarly as assessed using cognitive domains obtained by subdivision of the ESD in a patient population derived from a memory clinic and by analyzing VaD as a single entity.
Distinctive cognitive profiles in Alzheimer's disease and subcortical vascular dementia.
TLDR
Subcortical vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease produce distinctive profiles of cognitive impairment which can act as an adjunct to diagnosis, and many of the neuropsychological deficits thought to characterise Alzheimer's Disease are also found in subcorticals vascular dementia.
The accuracy of early diagnosis and predictors of death in Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia — a follow‐up study
TLDR
The results underline the problems of early diagnosis of dementia according to DSM‐III criteria and show a high ischemia score and a low body mass index predicted death for both sexes but not for women.
Cognitive and functional decline in African Americans with VaD, AD, and stroke without dementia
TLDR
Patients with vascular dementia who do not meet criteria for dementia soon after stroke may not be at high risk for developing dementia, and patients with VaD decline at a slower rate than patients with AD.
Preexisting dementia in stroke patients. Baseline frequency, associated factors, and outcome.
TLDR
The study showed that one sixth of stroke patients have preexisting dementia, and some patients with so-called "poststroke dementia" probably had unrecognized preexisted dementia.
Survival study of vascular dementia in Rochester, Minnesota.
TLDR
A temporal relationship to a stroke was the strongest predictive feature for poor survival in patients with dementia and the relative mortality of patients with VaD varied depending on the set of diagnostic criteria used.
Seven-year survival rate after age 85 years: relation to Alzheimer disease and vascular dementia.
TLDR
In extreme old age, Alzheimer disease and vascular dementia influence the mortality rate considerably, however, mild Alzheimer disease does not influence longevity, at least not during the first 7 years.
Prevalence and outcomes of vascular cognitive impairment. Vascular Cognitive Impairment Investigators of the Canadian Study of Health and Aging.
TLDR
Vascular cognitive impairment without dementia was the most prevalent form of vascular cognitive impairment among those aged 65 to 84 years, and rates of institutionalization and mortality for those with cognitive impairment were significantly higher than those of people who had no cognitive impairment.
Prevalence and outcomes of vascular cognitive impairment
TLDR
Vascular cognitive impairment without dementia was the most prevalent form of vascular cognitive impairment among those aged 65 to 84 years, and rates of institutionalization and mortality for those with cognitive impairment were significantly higher than those of people who had no cognitive impairment, and the mortality rate for patients with vascular Cognitive impairment was similar to that of patients with AD.
