The study was aimed to the evaluation of the structure of cardiovascular risk factors in elderly and senile patients of the neurological department of the Republican Clinical Hospital of War Veterans. The features of the structure of risk factors in these patients included the presence of comorbid cardiovascular pathology, dyslipidemia, and diabetes mellitus. Arterial hypertension was the leading factor for the progression of chronic cerebral ischemia (CCI) and the stroke risk factor in our study. For the prevention of the progression of clinical manifestations of CCI, primary and secondary prevention of stroke, relevant adequate antihypertensive therapy should be administered taking into account the comorbidity. The long-term use of anticoagulants (dabigatran) by this category of patients with individual choice of doses for atrial fibrillation is justified.
