BACKGROUND: To investigate the controlling efficacy of ondasetron and haloperidol in regard to the postcardiotomy delirium. METHODS: We included in this prospective, randomized, double-blinded study 80 patients who developed delirium after heart surgery with the application of heart lung-machine. The patients were divided into two, equally-sized groups, which on detection of delirium received ondasetron 8 mg iv or haloperidol 5 mg iv respectively. The statistical analysis compared the baseline and demographic characteristics of the two groups (age, gender, comorbidities, years of education, type of surgery etc...

AIMS: More than 20% of patients of 65 years or older may develop a delirium after cardiac surgery. Patients with delirium frequently show a disturbed 24-hr motor activity pattern, but objective and quantitative data are scarce. Our aim was to quantify motor activity patterns in elderly patients with or without a postcardiotomy delirium after elective cardiac surgery. METHODS: Wrist-actigraphy was used to quantify 24-hr motor activity patterns for a 5-day period following cardiac surgery in 79 patients of 65 years or older...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence and predictors of delirium after cardiac surgery. METHOD: A prospective, observational study of postcardiotomy surgical patients was conducted during a 5 month period at the Minneapolis, MN, VAMC. RESULTS: Of the 53 patients who completed the study, 12 patients (23%) met criteria for postoperative delirium and 18 patients (34%) met criteria for postoperative subsyndromal delirium. Significant predictors of postoperative delirium included a history of cerebrovascular disease (Charlson Index item, VA CICSP), high medical comorbidity (VA morbidity risk score, Charlson Index), increased preoperative creatinine level, and an increased preoperative pain rating...

UNLABELLED: BACKGROUND AND AIM OF REVIEW: Cardiac surgery is increasingly common and relatively safe, but there are frequent reports of neuropsychiatric sequelae occurring in the postoperative period. One of the most common neuropsychiatric presentations of cardiac surgery is delirium, also called postcardiotomy delirium (PCD). Despite the vast numbers of cardiac surgeries performed today, there is a paucity of data on risk factors and management options of PCD available to the clinician...

L E Tune
This article will briefly review the clinical studies focusing on measurement of serum levels of anticholinergic activity in delirious states. Three experimental approaches have been taken. First, to identify medications currently prescribed that have subtle anticholinergic effects. The current "list" includes 48 commonly prescribed medications. Second, to associate serum anticholinergic activity with delirium in various clinical states including postcardiotomy delirium, postelectroconvulsive delirium, delirious elderly medical inpatients, and nursing home patients...

Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy is an accepted operative procedure for treatment of pulmonary hypertension due to chronic embolism. Despite its proven value this procedure has been established at very few centers worldwide. In this paper we report our actual operative concept and operative results. Between 8'89 and 4'96 127 patients were operated with use of extracorporeal circulation, deep hypothermia and circulatory arrest. After analysis of the initial high perioperative mortality (26%, 29/108) our operative and postoperative concept changed since 11'94: 1...

Numerous articles have been published investigating the incidence of and risk factors for delirium after cardiac surgery. Smith and Dimsdale reviewed the literature on postcardiotomy delirium in 1987 using a meta-analysis of 44 research studies. However, doubts about their methods and results caused the authors to re-examine the literature using these 44 references as well as computerized literature searches to gather research and review papers from medical journals. Delirium after cardiac surgery appeared to be ill-defined in most of these studies...

This study investigated the relationship of incidence, degree, and duration of PCD to age of the patient, time on cardiopulmonary bypass, mean arterial pressure on bypass, ICU time, and body temperature postoperatively. The study sample consisted of 50 open-heart surgery patients. The delirium assessment was made each evening for 7 days after operation. Manifestations of delirium were experienced by 72% of the sample. Incidence of PCD was related to blood pressure on bypass, age, and temperature on the third postoperative day...

What is thought to be the first case of coronary artery bypass in a patient on lithium carbonate prophylaxis is presented. A postcardiotomy delirium developed on day 2 and appeared unrelated to the underlying manic-depressive illness. A 2-year follow-up indicated apparent resolution of pre-existing psychological difficulties and no recurrence of somatic symptoms. It is suggested that lithium carbonate prophylaxis be continued with appropriate monitoring during coronary artery bypass procedures.

This report details the implantation of a total artificial heart into a human being who survived for 112 days. Included are the criteria for candidate selection, the preoperative psychiatric evaluation, and the description of operative and postoperative complications in the context of the research subject's mental status over the period of his survival. Postmortem pathologic findings are reviewed. We summarize pertinent literature, including disordered behavior, postcardiotomy, and neuropsychiatric syndromes in hepatic, renal, and cardiac transplant patients...

Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy is an innovative surgical technique for treating pulmonary hypertension caused by chronic thromboembolism. The procedure uses cardiopulmonary bypass but necessitates dramatically longer bypass times than coronary artery bypass grafting or valve operations. We prospectively evaluated 22 patients undergoing pulmonary thromboendarterectomy to determine the incidence of delirium and its relationship to certain preoperative and postoperative medical variables as well as to duration of cardiopulmonary bypass, deep hypothermia, and circulatory arrest...

Although postcardiotomy delirium has been studied widely, there are few data about the current prevalence, compared to that reported in the late 1960s. There have been few efforts to replicate early observations. The authors review the literature using meta-analysis to combine the results of 44 studies. They examined the relationships between postcardiotomy delirium and 28 hypothesized risk variables. The prevalence of postcardiotomy delirium has remained fairly constant over time at 32%. There was no difference in the total prevalence of postcardiotomy delirium reported in studies that used interviews versus chart reviews...
