Objective:To investigate the cognitive characteristics,dangerous factors and the syndromes in mild cognitive impairment(MCI).Methods: Memory and cognitive function were assessed with Mini-Mental State Examination(MMSE).The MCI cases and normal controls were assessed by the Delayed Paragraph Story Recall Examination(DPR).A syndrome scale was used to diagnose the syndromes of subjects.The diagnosis of MCI,AD was made according to Petersen’s criteria,NINCDS-ADRDA,respectively.Results: MMSE scores of MCI cases were higher than that of normal controls,a signifi cantly difference was found.Average education level of normal controls was higher than that of MCI cases,but average contractive pressure was lower.Defi ciency of kidney,defi ciency of qi and phlegm syndromes were popular in both MCI cases aormal controls,and MCI cases had increased percentage of combined syndromes.Conclusion:The cognition function of MCI cases was decreased.Cognitive impairment was related to hypertensive disease and low education.As the development of cognitive impairment,complex Chinese medical syndromes appeared.

Objective:To investigate frequency of blood stasis syndrome(BSS) defined by traditional Chinese medicine in cerebral infarction and its correlations with carotid atherosclerotic plaque(CAP).Methods: All subjects comprised 151 patients aged 40 to 80 years(Mean ? SD age,65 ?11 years) with 67.9% for males and 32.1% for females.With the use of ACUSON7 color Doppler ultrasound,carotid atherosclerosis was evaluated by the plaque score,the left plaque score,the right plaque score,the numbers of the plaque respectively as defined by the sum of all plaque heights in bilateral carotid arteries.On the basis of neurological signs and symptoms,medical history,and brain MRI,we diagnosed stroke and its subtypes as follows: stroke(n=117),and vertebrobasilar insufficiency(VBI)(n=34) without the history of the stroke,which were based on Diagnostic Criteria for Cerebral Vascular Diseases in 2005.Diagnosis for syndromes defined by traditional Chinese medicine were made according to Diagnostic Criteria for Stroke in 1994.One-way ANOVA was used in comparison between groups,and multivariant Logistic Regression Analysis was conferred in correlations between several variables.Results: 47.0% of all cases with cerebral infarction presented the BSS,with as lower than syndrome of fire-heat(51.0%),as but significantly higher than syndrome of Qi deficiency(32.0%),liver-wind syndrome(27.0%),phlegm syndrome(23.0%) and syndrome of asthenic yin causing predominant yang(6.0%).There is a significant difference between groups for 44(79.0%) cases of 56 patients with cerebral infarction and the BSS have CAP,and only 35(57.0%) cases of 61 patients with cerebral infarction but without the BSS have CAP(P
