Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this report, we present a case of a post pump chorea in a 77-year-old male after concomitant cardiac procedure. Since this complication usually occurs in children, to our knowledge, the presented patient is the eldest described in literature. We discuss a long aortic clamp, resp. pump time presumably as a risk factor in this case. The symptoms improved after treatment with tetrabenazine.
