Pre-operative inflammatory burden in the elderly increases the risk of developing postoperative cognitive dysfunction
Post-operative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) refers to temporary cognitive impairment following surgery, most commonly affecting executive functions of memory and attention. Elderly patients undergoing surgery are at a greater risk of developing POCD; however, its aetiology remains to be fully elucidated. Activation of the immune system during surgical procedures is believed to play an important role in development of POCD.
The authors of this study sought to determine whether the degree of inflammatory burden pre-operatively increases the risk of developing POCD, in a group of elderly patients.

F1000Posters is a unique open access repository for posters and slide presentations across biology and medicine. By keeping the work visible long after a meeting has ended it maximizes the return on the time, effort and money invested in creating each presentation. We also accept depositions from local meetings (e.g. PhD student days).
F1000Posters has received positive responses from presenters and societies alike, and we have support from leading journals and publishers including Nature, Science, PNAS, Elsevier, BioMed Central, PLoS, SAGE etc (see here for a full list of responses). More »
