CARDIAC SURGERY AND THE BRAIN Summary

CARDIAC SURGERY AND THE BRAIN by Peter L Smith

There is a complex and sometimes catastrophic relationship between cardiac surgery and the brain. In this volume a number of international researchers give a detailed account of one of the last frontiers of cardiopulmonary bypass. Based on the latest research from leading cardiac centres, this book overviews three major aspects of the problem, the extent of cerebral dysfunction after cardiac surgery, and possible investigative techniques and intervention to reduce cerebral dysfunction.
