ABSTRACT
A case report of a seizure disorder occurring as a complication of open heart surgery is given. The seizures were first manifested 7 months after the operative procedure, indicating that neurologic complications may occur long after surgery. The authors discuss the pathogenesis and suggest a method for the reduction of this complication.
