In order to describe subclinical brain injury in conjunction with cardiac operations 94 patients were prospectively studied with three brain injury assessment methods: CSF analyses 24 hours after bypass, psychometry, and computed tomography of the brain. Adenylate kinase (AK), a marker of ischemic brain cell injury, was measured in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and in serum. In 13% of the patients, a considerable increase in CSF-AK was seen, in 46% there was a moderate increase, and in 41% no or… CONTINUE READING
