In brief: Variable picture

Vascular dementia is the result of pathological changes in the blood vessels of the brain that leads to decrease or total interruption blood supply to parts of the brain.
The sufferer may never have a stroke or tia. The deficits are usually due to changes in small vessels. The symptoms and progression are variable. Prevention depends on managing vascular risk factors. Hope this helps.
