Cerebral Artery Stenosis as a Risk Factor for Post-operative Cognitive Dysfunction

This study estimated that amongst patients 60-80 years of age who underwent elective, non-cardiac surgery, the peri-operative risk factors for post-operative cognitive decline, which occurred in up to 55.6% of the patients, include cerebral artery stenosis, operative time, and time to awakening


Objective: The reasons for post-operative cognitive decline (POCD) remain largely unknown. Therefore, we determined the effect of cerebral artery stenosis on post-operative cognitive function in the elderly.
