Short-term changes in cerebral activity in on-pump and off-pump cardiac surgery defined by functional magnetic resonance imaging and their relationship to microembolization.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: Cognitive dysfunction is common early after cardiac surgery. We previously reported that functional magnetic resonance imaging of the brain can detect subclinical changes in prefrontal cortical activation after coronary artery bypass grafting. In this study, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging to contrast perioperative prefrontal activation in patients undergoing on-pump and off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting and to relate differences to cerebral microembolic load....
