NOVIS, Sérgio Pereira et al. Effects of vincamine in patients with cerebrovascular insufficiency. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1975, vol.33, n.1, pp.25-32. ISSN 0004-282X.

The effects of the treatment with vincamine in 20 patients with cerebral vascular insufficiency are reported. The patients were previously submitted to the following tests: neurologic examination, electroencephalography, laboratory tests, psychometry (memory, intellective capability, concentrated attention, abstract reasoning and personality tests). Patients were medicated with vincamin in a 40 mg dose within 24 hours during approximately a 150 days period, after which were again submitted to an identical analysis. The results obtained revealed that in a reasonable percentage of the cases vincamin is an useful medication in controlling the clinical manifestations of the cerebral vascular insufficiency, an improvement being demonstrated in the retrograde and anterograde deficit rate observed in objective tests. An improvement was also noticed in the electroencephalograpric pattern of a few patients.
