ISC 2024 | Relationship between cardiovascular risk factors and later-life brain health

Santiago Clocchiatti-Tuozzo, MD, Yale School of Medicine, discusses the relationship between cardiovascular risk factors and later-life brain health. He emphasizes that the same processes affecting the coronary vessels and increasing the risk of cardiovascular events are occurring in the vessels in the brain. High cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes can cause cerebral arteriosclerosis, chronic inflammation, and impaired vessel function in the brain, just as in the rest of the body. These vessel changes are major contributors to stroke and dementia and may predispose, initiate, or perpetuate late-life depression. This interview occurred during the International Stroke Conference 2024 in Phoenix, AZ.
