Abstract

Patients with left carotid artery disease, right carotid artery disease, bilateral carotid artery disease, Alzheimer disease, and medical-surgical controls were compared using a battery of neuropsychological tests. The groups generally showed no differences on less complex tests of language, sensory, and motor function. Alzheimer disease patients were significantly more defective than all other groups on measures of attention, orientation, remote memory, recent memory, and reasoning. In addition, all carotid disease groups performed significantly more poorly than controls (but better than Alzheimer disease patients) on some measures of recent memory, with bilateral carotid disease patients performing most poorly. Patients with carotid artery disease differed from those with Alzheimer disease in both pattern and the degree of cognitive impairment.
