This research programme could substantially increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
Apathy has a major effect of quality of life for a SVD sufferer; we have shown that for the patient it is more important in determining quality of life than is disability, such as weakness, from the stroke itself.

This leaflet explains what vascular dementia is, what causes it and what you should do if you are diagnosed with it. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke or who think they may have vascular dementia.
Stroke can happen to anyone, including children. The causes of stroke for children are very different from those for adults. This leaflet explains what can cause stroke in children and how it is treated.
CADASIL is one of the most common genetic causes of stroke and dementia. Currently there is no treatment for CADASIL. In this study, human stem cells will be generated from a piece of skin donated by patients with CADASIL. From these stem cells, smooth muscle cells (SMCs) will be generated in a tissue culture dish in the lab.
A key cause of both stroke and dementia is known as ‘small vessel disease’ or ‘SVD’ for short.
Published in the journal Age and Ageing, a new systematic review of the current research suggests that anticoagulant drugs may have cognitive benefit for those with AF (atrial fibrillation).
If you are worried about vascular dementia, this guide is for you. It provides information about the signs of vascular dementia, living with the condition, and getting help and support.
Disease of the chest portion of the largest artery in the body (the aorta), is known as thoracic aortic disease (TAD). The number of people experiencing TAD is increasing. This study is investigating how to make thoracic endovascular aortic stenting (TEVAR), the preferred method of treating TAD, safer by using extra protection devices.
