Vascular dementias (VD, due to the various expressions of VD the plural form is used) are the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer’s dementia. These dementias play an important role especially in geriatric patients. They can occur due to acute events (e.g. stroke) and due to slowly progressive cerebrovascular damage. This article focuses on VD due to cortical and strategic infarcts, microangiopathic infarcts with lacunae as well as intracerebral bleeding. In addition to the clinical description and radiological findings, a special focus is on education, prevention and rehabilitation aspects.
