[Characteristics of clinical presentations and cerebral hemodynamic changes in elderly men and women with initiatory stages of dyscirculatory encephalopathy].

Abstract

72 elderly women and 48 matched by age and education men with initiatory stages of dyscirculatory encephalopathy (DE) have been studied using comparative analysis of clinical, cognitive and sonographic characteristics. The results demonstrate the predomination of cognitive impairment and fine motor coordination disorders among men with DE. Psychovegetative and statolocomotor disorders prevailed in women-patients. It was shown by means of transcranial duplex scanning that elderly women with DE were characterized by more severe abnormal venous outflow from the brain.
