Speaker: Chanchal Cabrera. More than 234 million surgical procedures are performed annually worldwide and over 40% of patients experience cognitive impairment, including memory deficits, after surgery and anesthesia. This is associated with poor patient outcomes including reduced quality of life, loss of independence, and increased mortality. In addition, surgery up-regulates several growth factors necessary for angiogenesis, as well as inflammatory pathways, such as COX-2 and LOX-5 and these can all promote cancer growth. In this lecture we explore when and why, or why not, to do surgery, how to promote tissue repair and cognitive recovery, and how to reduce risk of spreading cancer.
