[Neuropsychological status of patients with low and moderate carotid artery stenoses after the coronary artery bypass surgery].

[Article in Russian]


The purpose of the study was a comparative evaluation of a neurological and neuropsychological status of patients with and without carotid artery stenoses less than 50% after coronary artery bypass grafting. The study involved 65 patients divided into two groups: the first group included 35 patients (mean age 56.2±5.7 years) without carotid artery stenoses, the second group included 30 patients (56.8±5.5 years) with the presence of carotid artery stenoses. Initially, all patients had comparable clinical parameters. Before surgery, the high frequency of asthenic, vestibulopathic and vestibular-atactic syndromes was observed in patients with the presence of low and moderate stenoses of carotid arteries compared to patients without stenoses. After coronary artery bypass grafting, the neurological status of patients became worse in both groups. Patients with the presence of low and moderate stenoses of carotid arteries performed worse on neuropsychological tests one month after surgery.
