Background. Inhalation anesthetics such as isoflurane, sevoflurane, and desflurane are widely used in clinical practice; however, there is no study for comparing these drugs in cardiac surgery with respect to postoperative cognitive out. come and SIN beta protein (SIOO BP) levels. In this study, we evaluated the effect of sevoflurane, isoflurane, and desflurane anesthesia on neuropsychological outcome and S100 BP levels in patients-undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).
