The postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) of school-age children (6-14 age) after operation draw more attention from both society and family. It is well known that, compare with sevoflurane, desflurane could improve cognitive function in elderly patients. But whether Desflurane could improve postoperative cognitive function compare with Sevoflurane for the school-age children, there is no consistent conclusion.

A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE.
