Changes in Cerebrovascular Reactivity During Cognitive Activation After Cardiopulmonary Bypass: Relation With Intraoperative Embolic Load and Postoperative Neuropsychological Dysfunctions

2014-08-27 03:41:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study aims to evaluate neuropsychological disorders in CABG patients. Measurements are performed 1 day before, 6 days, 6 months and 3-5 years after the surgery. The relation with cerebrovascular reactivity and embolic load (measured by transcranial Doppler Ultrasonography) is evaluated. Two surgery techniques (on- and off-pump CABG) are compared.

A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups. (From Medical Care, vol.xix, no.8, August 1981, p.787-805)

A prolonged seizure or seizures repeated frequently enough to prevent recovery between episodes occurring over a period of 20-30 minutes. The most common subtype is generalized tonic-clonic status epilepticus, a potentially fatal condition associated with neuronal injury and respiratory and metabolic dysfunction. Nonconvulsive forms include petit mal status and complex partial status, which may manifest as behavioral disturbances. Simple partial status epilepticus consists of persistent motor, sensory, or autonomic seizures that do not impair cognition (see also EPILEPSIA PARTIALIS CONTINUA). Subclinical status epilepticus generally refers to seizures occurring in an unresponsive or comatose individual in the absence of overt signs of seizure activity. (From N Engl J Med 1998 Apr 2;338(14):970-6; Neurologia 1997 Dec;12 Suppl 6:25-30)
