All dementia have a vascular component, ranging from 60% in frontotemporal dementia to 80% in Alzheimer disease, which lowers the threshold of clinical presentation. Vascular cognitive impairment is any impairment caused by or associated with vascular factors.

Vascular disease is treatable and preventable, thus identifying the vascular components of all dementias offer the possibility to prevent or delay dementia.
