Avatar n tn Hello, There are certain risk factors which may increase a person’s chances of having a stroke after bypass surgery. The inflammatory process and hypercoagulability after surgery puts a person at risk which peaks two days after the surgery. If one is able to identify the etiology of this postoperative risk factor for stroke it can lead to better management of patient with risk of stroke.

Avatar m tn Hi, I'm 57 yr old, male, I have bypass surgery scheduled for the next Friday. As it was shown in catheterization results, I have one artery fully blocked and the other one is 30-40% blocked, The heart is fed through three vessels from that other artery. My doctor told me that stent is impractical in my case and advised me for bypass surgery.
Avatar n tn The doc at ICU said he should be awake, they took him for a scan to see if he had a stroke but there was no sign of a stroke. When they put the medicine that keeps him asleep down, he moves his leg, arms, mouth and opens his eye lids without moving his pupils and doesn't respond to anything i say. the nurse tried shaking him and speaking very loudly but there was no reaction besides opening his eye lids. What is the problem? What can we do besides wait and approx.

Avatar n tn Patients may experience neurological deficits after cardio-pulmonary bypass. Some of this may be due to small blood clots that go to the brain and some may be due to inadequate perfusion of the brain during the surgery. It can be hard to distinguish this from a stroke at the time of the surgery.
532476 tn?1214517184 m concerned that I may have problems again. Just wanted to know if anybody has gone longer than 16 years after bypass surgery and if they have had any complications since. My understanding is that the veins used in bypass surgery have a tendency to get blocked again. Am I worrying for no reason?
Avatar n tn After my dad had quadruple bypass surgery he has been acting very odd. He is all speedy, talking very fast, acting crazy, irrational, repeating things over and over, not sleeping, mind constantly racing, overly high on life to a point where it's manic-like and he is making all these big decisions that will be devastating if he is not in the right mind to be making them. He is just acting crazy and irrational and possibly delusional and I need to know why. I want my dad back!!!

Since the day of her surgery she's had numbness in her arm and leg. It has been going on for the last two years. She's had some therapy, the Dr. said it might never go away and that she might have to live with the problem. She's not coping with it very well and has even had some counseling but to no avail.

Avatar m tn She suffered a stroke during or after surgery. She was released about 9 days after surgery. Recovery seemed slow and hard but doable until she started having trouble breathing and went to the er and was admitted. So now in the hospital all of the sudden she is having problems with her kidney funtion. She has had fluid removed from her chest 2-3 times now. What is causing this and can she recover?
