Study: Dementia risk raised 35 percent by general anesthesia

from Bloomberg

Older people who undergo general anesthesia for major surgery have a 35 percent higher risk of developing dementia later in life, according to a French study. The findings are based on information from the Three-City Study, which included thousands of people age 65 and older in Bordeaux, Dijon and Montpellier starting in 1999. In a subpopulation of 7,008 citizens, 632 participants developed dementia over the course of the study, and those patients were more likely to have had general anesthesia than those who didn't develop mental deterioration. more
