[Hypertension as a source of cognitive regression, or dementia].
Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd. 2007 Nov 03; 151(44):2435-9.NT

Abstract

Cognitive deterioration and its sequelae of vascular or Alzheimer's dementia is rapidly increasing all over the world. This is primarily caused by the worldwide increase of the ageing population. Additional causes may be sought in factors such as genetics and a habitually unhealthy life style. The significance of high blood pressure in the process leading to cognitive deterioration is relatively unknown. However, timely detection and treatment of hypertension seems to contribute to the preservation of cognition. Experience has shown that this applies in particular to dihydropyridine calcium antagonists. Medical care tends to make insufficient use of the existing possibilities for treating hypertension.
