Vascular basis for cognitive decline

Orthostatic Hypotension is Associated With 20-year Cognitive Decline and Incident Dementia: the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study
Andreea Rawlings | Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD

RESULTS: Midlife orthostatic hypotension (OH) association with dementia and cognitive over the next 20 years raise questions for future study.


Olfactory Function and Neurocognitive Outcomes in Old Age: the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Neurocognitive Study (ARIC-NCS)
Priya Palta | University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC

RESULTS: Impaired sense of smell may be a marker of neurodegeneration.


Carotid Artery Stiffness and Decline in Cognitive Function Among Women With, or at Risk for, HIV Infection
Daniel Huck | Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein, Bronx, NY

RESULTS: Less carotid stiffness in these women was associated with slower cognitive decline.


Cardiovascular Health at Young and Middle Ages and Dementia in Older Age - The Chicago Heart Association Detection Project in Industry Study
Thanh-Huyen T Vu | Northwestern University, Chicago, IL

RESULTS: Better cardiovascular health when young was associated with lower dementia risk later in life.

Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB)

Steven R. Lentz, MD, PhD, FAHA

The Council on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB) contributes to the mission and objectives of the American Heart Association (AHA) through efforts in the fields of arteriosclerosis, thrombosis and vascular biology. The council advances and coordinates research, addresses prevention, improves methods for diagnosis and treatment, and works actively with other organizations concerned with these issues. The council disseminates reliable information related to these fields through its annual conference, many awards and lectures, and the AHA's journal, Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology.

Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation (3CPR)

Benjamin S. Abella, MD, MPhil, FAHA

The American Heart Association's (AHA) strategic goal to reduce coronary heart disease, stroke and risk by 20 percent by the year 2020 has led to an emphasis on the importance of resuscitation and the chain of survival in AHA activities and use of resources. The Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation (3CPR) bench-to-bedside and community approach ranges from integrated cardiopulmonary physiology to issues of critical care, emergency cardiovascular care and CPR. Pulmonary hypertension and regulation of the pulmonary circulation have historically been areas of investigation for many of our council members. The council is keenly interested in promoting approaches that include clinical care, clinical research and basic science.

Council activities focus on developing research interests and careers of young investigators, writing scientific statements for the AHA, supporting scientific meetings and providing representation on various American Heart Association committees.
