Due to population aging, cardio-vascular diseases represent the main reason of death in our country. With advancing age, the vascular risk changes from mainly cardio-vascular into mainly cerebro-vascular. Dementia, a disease very common at an old age (6%), has a strong social and medical impact and its incidence increases with age (7% between 65 e 74 years; 28% more than 85 years). This study aims at verifying, in a sample of old people, the prevalence of each cardiocerebrovasculopathy risk factor, taking into account their mutual association and their relationship with dementia.
