Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate cognitive function, as measured by serial neuropsychologic testing, and cerebral perfusion, as measured by brain SPECT scanning in coronary artery diseases (CAD) patients following off-pump and on-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Besides the relationship between cerebral blood flow, cognitive functions, surgery parameters and cardiac function in these patients were estimated. Also brain-protective effects of instenon were studied. Coronary artery bypass graft surgery, cardiopulmonary bypass, off-pump coronary revascularization, cognitive function, cerebrovascular complications, brain SPECT.
