Abstract
This case study reports on the neuropsychological consequences of prolonged circulatory arrest with hypothermia and barbiturate "protection". Measurements performed during surgery showed a prolonged absence of EEG. The neuropsychological assessment revealed a remarkable preservation of function, with the exception of delayed verbal memory and performance on the Trial Making Test. The findings are discussed in relation to the safe duration of circulatory arrest and the protection afforded the brain by hypothermia and barbiturate.
