Background and objectives: Postoperative cognitive dysfunction is common after cardiac surgery. Adequate cerebral perfusion is essential and near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) can measure cerebral oxygenation. Aim of this study is to compare incidence of early and Late postoperative cognitive dysfunction in elderly patients treated with conventional or near infrared spectroscopy monitoring.
