- Quality of life
- Cardiac morbidity
- Neurologic morbidity
- Neurocognitive deterioration
- • To evaluate the prognostic importance of severe atheromatous disease of the descending aorta as found on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) as a predictor of neurologic events.
- • To correlate TEE and epiaortic scanning for aortic atheroma with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in order to develop a non-invasive screening tool.
- • To assess the clinical significance of persistent post-operative depression as measured by the CES-D by using a structured clinical interview and to evaluate the relationship between pre-operative depression and the occurrence of cardiac, neurologic a
- • To provide data on the mechanism of perioperative neurologic and cognitive complications in order to design other specific intervention to reduce postoperative morbidity.
