A prospective study was undertaken of cerebral complications in 91 patients undergoing coronary by-pass surgery. Patients showing clinically relevant neurological complications had longer pump-times but did not differ in pre-operative variables. Worsening of neurological state correlated with duration of pump-time but not with pre-operative variables. Duration of pump-time appears to be the main predictor of neurological complications after coronary by-pass surgery.
