Mini strokes: Vascular dementia refers to a kind of dementia that is caused by problems with the blood vessels in the brain (usually plaque formation, just as in cardiac disease) which results in loss of brain tissue due to lack of adequate oxygen and blood flow. In a sense it is like having very tiny strokes.
