In the study by Fogel et al titled “Physiologic Vasomotor Symptoms are Associated with Verbal Memory Dysfunction in Breast Cancer Survivors” the relationship between vasomotor symptoms and verbal memory performance (by the California Verbal Learning Test and Logical Memory) was studied in 30 breast cancer survivors whose mean age was 52.7. The outcome was that physiologic vasomotor symptoms (objectively measured) but not subjective ones were associated with worse memory performance and this was independent of sleep. This is the first study to show the effect of vasomotor symptoms on memory in women with a history of breast cancer.

This video summarizes the research article published in Menopause entitled “The severity of vasomotor symptoms and number of menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women and select clinical health outcomes in the Women's Health Initiative Calcium and Vitamin D Randomized Clinical Trial”. Peter Schnatz and Matthew Nudy discuss the study design, menopausal symptoms recorded, outcomes assessed and the results. Having more moderate and severe menopausal symptoms was associated with increased cardiovascular disease and stroke. In addition, the clinical significance of the results are discussed.
