Appropriate perioperative and postoperative management can optimize outcomes, and the management can signific...

AbstractAlzheimer ’s dementia is significantly more common in women than in men. However, few pathological studies have addressed sex difference in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other brain pathologies. We leveraged postmortem data from 1453 persons who participated in one of two longitudinal community-based studi es of older adults, the Religious Orders Study and the Rush Memory and Aging Project. Postmortem examination identified AD pathologies, neocortical Lewy bodies, DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43), hippocampal sclerosis, gross and micro infarcts, atherosclerosis, arteriolosclerosis, and cerebral amyloid an...

Read the full article on HealthCentral about awareness and memory loss - and how lack of  this awareness can point to developing dementia: MedicareFAQ – Medicare Resource Center Support a caregiver or jump-st...
