Vascular brain lesions are one of the most frequent causes of cognitive impairment, especially in elderly and senile patients. Their severity is variable: from a minimum disorders of higher brain functions to dementia. Currently, the treatment of cognitive dysfunction in vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) includes the use of cholinesterase inhibitors and NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) antagonists. Primary and secondary prevention of SKN is similar to the prevention of stroke [11]. Phenotropil is the one of the most promising drug for the treatment and prevention of the progression of cognitive impairment.
