Given the global trends in population aging, the prevalence of vascular dementia (VD) is increasing year by year. VD has become the second most common type of dementia and can seriously threaten the quality of life of patients. Since VD is preventable, it is important to study VD clinically in order to improve the prognosis of patients. In recent years, a large number of studies have been carried out at home and abroad, focusing on the pathogenesis, rehabilitation assessment, and treatment of VD. This article is a concise overview of these studies.
