Subclinical brain damage in older patients with hypertension and dementia. Major attention has recently been given to subclinical organ damage due to the influence of high blood pressure. The option to utilise nuclear magnetic resonance in diagnostics has given more scope for the discovery of early-stage organ damage, including that caused to the brain. It seems that it is precisely the close relationship between hypertension and the brain that is the cause of frequent asymptomatic impairment. Therapy through the treatment of hypertension is possible and is closely related to disorders of the cognitive functions and dementia.
