The performed work demonstrates the significance of pre-operation conditions of the patients, in the first place - the level of cerebrovascular insufficiency and associated cardiac pathology. In this connection it is evident that there is a necessity to apply organizational and medicamentous preventive measures at all medical treatment stages. The comparative analysis of the results of the preventive measures joint application provides strong evidence (p<0,05) of the reduction in frequency of cerebral complications, while neurological and neuropsychological examination and ultrasound diagnostic of brachiocephal and cerebral arteries can be efficient tools to control the dynamic conditions of the brain.
