Over the years, we’ve had several discussions about cognitive issues following heart surgery. Several patients in our community have complained of “pumphead”. Patients often describe pumphead as forgetfulness and/or memory loss that is potentially attributable to heart-lung machine use during open-heart procedures. At the same time, many patients in our community have not noticed any changes in mental capabilities following heart surgery.
For this reason, I continue to search for more information about post-operative brain function so that we can all learn more. That said, I just came across a new study that was recently published in the The Annals of Thoracic Surgery.
