- symptomatic cerebrovascular disease with substantial residual deficit, alcohol
abuse, psychiatric illness, renal failure (creatinine>2.0),


- hepatic dysfunction (ALT or AST > 1.5 x ULN), history of allergy or myopathy with

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Statin Therapy To Limit Cognitive Dysfunction After Cardiac Surgery
Official Title  ICMJE Statin Therapy To Limit Cognitive Dysfunction After Cardiac Surgery
Brief Summary The primary aim of our prospective, randomized, double-blind interventional clinical trial is to determine the effectiveness of high dose atorvastatin therapy to reduce post operative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) in patients undergoing cardiac valve surgery. We hypothesize that therapy with high dose atorvastatin will significantly reduce the incidence and/or severity of POCD.
