Coronary artery bypass grafting is an important treatment option for coronary artery disease. A wide variety of neurocognitive impairment ranging from stroke, postoperative delirium, depression and early and delayed impairment in memory and visuospatial functions has been reported. The results of the studies are variable because of various patient populations, associate comorbidity, timing of study and absence or type of controls. The reported causes of cognitive impairment are micro-emboli, hypo-perfusion, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, anesthesia, associated depression, genetic susceptibility and associated cardiovascular risk factor and MRI abnormalities. Further studies are needed to evaluate employing objective clinical and electrodiagnostic measures.
