Abstract: Central nervous system dysfunction remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality after cardiac surgical procedures done on cardiopulmonary bypass. A novel brand of balanced salt solution, kabilyte and Ringer lactate (RL) were used as prime solutions in the present study. We aim to compare the cerebral protective effects of kabilyte and ringer lactate solutions in CPB using Mini Mental State Examination tests. MethodPatients were randomized into two groups. Open heart surgery was performed by using kabilyte in group A (n 32) and Ringer lactate solution in group B (n 32). Preoperative and postoperative informative cognitive test scores, characteristics of the patients were compared. ResultsNo significant difference was found between the preoperative and postoperative cognitive test scores in group A as well as Group B (p 0.05). ConclusionIt may be suggested that Kabilyte as well as RL may cause a reduction in the incidence of cerebral complications when used as prime solution in patients who undergo CPB.
