Neurologic Injury Associated with CABG Surgery: Outcomes, Mechanisms, and Opportunities for Improvement
AbstractNeurologic injuries, whether subtle or overt, are a major source of morbidity secondary to coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. A comprehensive review of research in the area of neurologic injury is provided. We conclude this article by providing insight regarding areas requiring further investigation in order to reduce sustainably the risk of these iatrogenic events among patient undergoing CABG surgery.
