ABSTRACT Introduction: Dementia is a worldwide health concern, which leads to loss of autonomy. To date no curative treatment is available so focus on modifiable risk factors is of particular interest. Hypertension, particularly midlife high blood pressure, has been associated with an increased risk for cognitive decline and dementia including vascular dementia (VAD) and Alzheimer disease (AD). In this context, antihypertensive treatments might have a preventive effect. The objective of this… 
[Arterial hypertension, cognitive disorders and dementia: a view of a cardiologist].
TLDR
The importance of the interdisciplinary approach to treatment of cognitive impairment by cardiologists and/or therapists, together with neurologists, as well as complex treatment regimens, including correction of risk factors and neuroprotective therapy, is highlighted.
Antihypertension drugs in prevention of cognition disorder and dementia: focus on calcium channel blockers and diuretics
TLDR
Nitrendipine, among the calcium channels antagonists, and indapamide among diuretics have acquired the broadest evidence that points on their cerebroprotective properties, and are considered as a major component of systemic hypertension management.
How all-type dementia risk factors and modifiable risk interventions may be relevant to the first-generation aging with HIV infection?
TLDR
The burden of dementia risk in aging PLHIV is higher than that in the general population, particularly in the most vulnerable clusters, so a comprehensive and preventative neurogeriatric healthcare response linked with HIV communities and dementia associations should be urgently put in place.
Prevalence of risk factors for dementia in middle- and older- aged people registered in Primary Health Care
TLDR
Evaluating the prevalence of main risk factors for dementia in individuals registered in Primary Health Care in Brazil and their relationship with sex and age group can guide interventions, especially in developing countries.
Natriuretic Peptides, Cognitive Impairment and Dementia: An Intriguing Pathogenic Link with Implications in Hypertension
TLDR
By counteracting early on the cardiovascular risk factor load and the pathological processes leading to increased aminoterminal natriuretic peptide (NT-proNP) level, the risk of dementia could be significantly reduced, and an increased NP level should be considered as a direct marker of neuronal damage.
Factors associated with dementia in elderly.
TLDR
Dementia prevalence was high and diagnosed dementia was associated with lower levels of vitamin D, suggesting vitamin D is a modifiable factor, opening up essential perspectives for public health policies.
Felodipine in Treatment of Arterial Hypertension and Ischemic Heart Disease
TLDR
Felodipine has a sufficient evidence base of clinical trials demonstrating not only good antihypertensive and antianginal potential of the drug, but also the nephroprotection and cerebroprotection properties.
Plasma Lipid Profile of Moderate and Severe Hypertensive Patients
TLDR
A progressive increase in the plasma level of TC and LDLc from mild to severe hypertensive patients is revealed which could be a pointer to the fact that abnormalities in lipid metabolism might plays a significant role in the development and severity of hypertension.

Blood pressure lowering in patients without prior cerebrovascular disease for prevention of cognitive impairment and dementia.
TLDR
No convincing evidence from the trials identified that blood pressure lowering in late-life prevents the development of dementia or cognitive impairment in hypertensive patients with no apparent prior cerebrovascular disease is identified.
Vascular risk factors, cognitve decline, and dementia
TLDR
Vascular risk factors and their treatments are a promising avenue of research for prevention of dementia, and further long-term, placebo-controlled, randomized studies, need to be performed.
Antihypertensive classes, cognitive decline and incidence of dementia: a network meta-analysis
TLDR
The results support the notion that antihypertensive treatment has beneficial effects on cognitive decline and prevention of dementia, and indicate that these effects may differ between drug classes with ARBs possibly being the most effective.
Antihypertensive drugs and incidence of dementia: the Rotterdam Study
Antihypertensive Drugs, Prevention of Cognitive Decline and Dementia: A Systematic Review of Observational Studies, Randomized Controlled Trials and Meta-Analyses, with Discussion of Potential Mechanisms
TLDR
Antihypertensive drugs, particularly calcium channel blockers and renin–angiotensin system blockers, may be beneficial in preventing cognitive decline and dementia, but further randomized controlled trials with longer periods of follow-up and cognition as the primary outcome are needed to confirm these findings.
Reducing the Risk of Dementia: Efficacy of Long-Term Treatment of Hypertension
TLDR
In hypertensive men, the duration of the antihypertensive treatment is associated with a reduced risk for dementia and cognitive decline, which is similar to the normotensives.
The association of antihypertensive medication use with risk of cognitive decline and dementia: a meta‐analysis of longitudinal studies
TLDR
The quantitative meta‐analysis showed that antihypertensive medication use could decrease risk of the development of VD and any dementia, but could not decrease that of AD, cognitive decline and cognitive impairment.
Diuretic antihypertensive drugs and incident dementia risk: a systematic review, meta-analysis and meta-regression of prospective studies
TLDR
Diuretic antihypertensive drugs were associated with a consistent reduction in dementia risk without heterogeneity, pointing to generalizability of these findings.
Mixed dementia: emerging concepts and therapeutic implications.
TLDR
Cardiovascular risk factor control, especially for hypertension and hyperlipidemia, as well as other interventions to prevent recurrent stroke, likely represent important strategies for preventing or slowing the progression of mixed dementia.
