Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A wide array of neurologic complications can occur in relation to cardiac surgical procedures, most of which are transient and do not result in permanent sequelae. Specific neurologic insults can occur depending on the type of cardiac procedure and are an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Neurologists practicing in the hospital setting as well as outpatient neurologists should be familiar with the cardiac surgical procedures currently available. Prompt identification of neurologic deficits is important in order to plan an appropriate systematic evaluation and initiate possible treatments in a timely manner. This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of all facets of neurologic complications after cardiac surgical procedures.
