In Western Countries, stroke and dementia are the main causes of long-term disability, dependency, and nursing home admission. Due to demographic trends a continuous increase of patient numbers can be expected.
There is growing evidence that vascular risk factors which are implicated in the etiology of stroke also play important etiologic roles in both vascular dementia and Alzheimer disease. The present project is aimed at the reduction of stroke and dementia by means of a systematic detection and subsequent treatment of vascular risk factors by the family doctor based on established guidelines.

It is hypothesized that patients with vascular disease are undertreated for modifiable risk factors, leading to increased morbidity and mortality in this population. The objective of this...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of an internet based vascular risk factor program on top of usual care compared to usual care alone for treatm...
Vegetarian and vegan diets have been shown to reduce chronic disease risk, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as several cardiometabolic risk factors. Whether vegetaria...
VIP is a demonstration project with a goal to decrease modifiable risk factors for those with a higher risk of having a vascular event such as a heart attack or stroke or of developing vas...
Fructose-containing sugars have been implicated in the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and related cardiometabolic disorders. This view is supported by lower quality evidence from ecologica...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global health burden and is independently associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk. Assessment of cardiovascular risk in the general population using pro...
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the most common cause of non-communicable disease mortality in sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries. Gaps in knowledge of CVD conditions and their risk factors are im...
A large body of evidence supports the cardioprotective effects of the long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). There is incr...
Systematic reviews (SRs) are important for healthcare decision makers requiring evidence for interventions that target modifiable risk factors to prevent disease. We investigated whether Cochrane SR o...
The aim of this systematic review was to identify the issues related to the vulnerability and psychosocial risk factors of people who identify as transgender. A search of relevant electronic databases...
Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.
An approach or process of practicing oral health care that requires the judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinical relevant scientific evidence, relating to the patient's oral and medical condition and history, with the dentist's clinical expertise and the patient's treatment needs and preferences. (from J Am Dent Assoc 134: 689, 2003)
An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
Paracrine substances produced by the VASCULAR ENDOTHELIUM with VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE relaxation (VASODILATION) activities. Several factors have been identified, including NITRIC OXIDE and PROSTACYCLIN.
