The Influence of Bone Cement Implantation in Primary Hip Arthroplasty on S100B Protein Serum Concentration and Patients’ Cognitive Functions as Markers of Brain Damage


The objective of the study was to evaluate the influence of the bone cement used during primary hip arthroplasty on brain functions assessed at the biochemical and clinical levels. The S100B protein is a biochemical marker of brain damage. Its plasma concentration was compared with the results of neuropsychological tests, conducted during the perioperative… (More)
