Heart disease, such as coronary heart disease (CHD), is the leading cause of death among aging women. However, over the past years, the mortality rate has declined, resulting in an increased number of CHD survivors. In this context, research has uncovered relationships between cardiovascular disease (CVD) and the development of neurodegenerative diseases, suggesting that CHD can act as a precursor. Despite heart disease affecting both sexes, CVD research has significantly neglected women… Expand


Sex Differences in Cardiovascular Disease and Cognitive Impairment: Another Health Disparity for Women?
New criteria for AD were established by the National Institute on Aging and Alzheimer's Association to recognize that the disease occurs across a continuum of pathologic changes that precede its clinical manifestations and culminates with Alzheimer dementia. Expand
The Role of Cardiovascular Disease in Cognitive Impairment
The relationship between end-organ CVD itself and dementia is of extreme importance in considering prevention, and earlier intervention might be the most beneficial since CVD risk appears to have strongest relationships with cognition when measured years before the onset of dementia. Expand
Impact of coronary heart disease on cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease: a prospective longitudinal cohort study in primary care.
The study shows that CHD has a significant influence on cognitive decline in older patients with late-onset dementia, and the dementia process might therefore be positively influenced by cardiovascular prevention, and this possible effect should be further investigated. Expand
Cardiovascular Disease and Cognitive Decline in Postmenopausal Women: Results From the Women's Health Initiative Memory Study
CVD is associated with cognitive decline in elderly postmenopausal women and Hypertension and diabetes, but not adiposity, are associated with a higher risk for cognitive decline. Expand
A major role for cardiovascular burden in age-related cognitive decline
The suggested declining trend in dementia risk, occurring in parallel with the decreasing incidence of cardiovascular events in high-income countries, supports the role of cardiovascular burden in dementia and strategies to promote cardiovascular health might help to delay the onset of dementia. Expand
Thyroid Hormones, Brain, and Heart
Evaluation of possible association between genetic polymorphisms of enzymes involved in thyroid hormone transport and metabolism with patient-centered health status could help to more accurately identify high-risk CVD patients and provide with personalized treatment approaches. Expand
History of coronary heart disease and cognitive performance in midlife: the Whitehall II study.
Among men, the trend within CHD cases suggested progressively lower scores on reasoning, vocabulary and semantic fluency among those with longer duration of CHD. Expand
Cognitive function in patients with coronary artery disease: A literature review
New techniques in CABG surgery have proven to alleviate postoperative cognitive decline, but researchers are still debating the effects of APOE4 genotype, LVEF, and the use of cardiovascular medications on cognitive function. Expand
Coronary Artery Calcium, Brain Function and Structure: The AGES-Reykjavik Study
In a population-based sample, increasing atherosclerotic load assessed by CAC is associated with poorer cognitive performance and dementia, and these relations are mediated by evidence of brain pathology. Expand
Angina Pectoris Severity Among Coronary Heart Disease Patients is Associated With Subsequent Cognitive Impairment
In people with preexisting CHD, severity of angina pectoris in mid-life is associated with late-life poorer cognitive performance, independent of other vascular risk factors. Expand
