Abstract

Two to 3 years after cardiac bypass graft and valve replacement procedures, 143 patients responded to a survey about their complaints of cognitive impairment. Patients completed an elaborate survey of everyday cognitive problems and answered specific questions about their lifestyle, general health, cardiac risk factors, surgery, and recovery. In general, respondents did not endorse cognitive problems following cardiac surgery. Risk factors, such as number of arteries bypassed and age, did not correlate with reports of cognitive dysfunction, but psychological distress did. This suggests that many patients experience psychological distress after surgery and that this distress is partially expressed in the form of complaints about mild memory loss and cognitive inefficiency.
