The Correlation Between Neurological and Neuropsychological Variables

  • Reijo Hirvenoja


Patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery may be influenced by short-term neurological and neuropsychological deficits. In order to assess these deficits, we have assessed the neurological and neuropsychological sequelae of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery at several points in time. This paper presents preliminary findings on the correlations between neurological and preoperative neuropsychological variables observed in the first 340 coronary bypass surgery patients in this multicenter study.
