Cerebral damage remains a major hazard of open-heart surgery. A one-year follow-up investigation of consecutive patients who underwent open-heart operation for valve replacement revealed an incidence of postoperative cerebral disorders of 37%.Cited by: COVID Resources.

Cerebral injury is a frequent complication of cardiac surgery and has been associated with high mortality, morbidity, hospital costs, and an increased likelihood of admission to a secondary care facility after hospital discharge, and impaired quality of life. 47, 71, 78, 86 There are a variety of manifestations of perioperative cerebral injury including ischemic (or, less commonly, hemorrhagic Cited by: However, many more patients without FND manifest cognitive dysfunction or evidence of brain injury on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) without FND. We review the current understanding of this silent brain injury after cardiac surgery. Incidence. Cognitive dysfunction is the most common clinical evidence of brain injury after cardiac by: Sotaniemi K.A. () Prevalence and causes of cerebral complications in cardiac surgery. In: Willner A.E. (eds) Cerebral Damage Before and After Cardiac Surgery. Developments in Critical Care Medicine and Anesthesiology, vol Cited by: 3. INTRODUCTION. Neurologic complications are second only to heart failure as a cause of morbidity and mortality following cardiac surgery, and the presence of neurologic sequelae significantly increases the likelihood of requiring long-term care [].The neurologic complications of cardiac surgery in .

  The appearance of cognitive dysfunction after cardiac surgery in the absence of focal neurologic signs, a poorly understood but potentially devastating complication, almost certainly results from procedure-related brain injury. Confirmation of the occurrence of perioperative silent brain injury has been developed through advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) by: Cerebral damage is a serious complication of pediatric cardiac surgery. Early prediction of actual risk can be useful in counseling of parents, and in early diagnosis and rehabilitation therapy. Also, if all children at risk could be identified therapeutic strategies to limit perioperative cerebral damage might be by:   Brain scientists and cardiac surgeons at Johns Hopkins have evidence from heart bypass surgery patients that long-term memory losses and cognitive problems they experience are due to the underlying coronary artery disease itself and not ill after-effects from having used a heart-lung machine.. Researchers say their latest findings explain study results presented last year, which .   Furthermore, after comparing neuronal protein levels between the on-pump cardiac surgery group and the otolaryngeal surgery group, tau levels were found to be significantly elevated in the on-pump surgery group, particularly during surgery (mean difference, %; p Author: Marek Alifier, Bob Olsson, Bob Olsson, Ulf Andreasson, Nicholas C.
