Surgery helps millions of Americans overcome illness to live longer, healthier lives. Yet surgery can lead to delirium, cognitive decline, and perhaps even a higher long-term risk of dementia for many patients, a risk that is poorly understood and often under-recognized in the clinic. With numerous factors—including age—contributing to each patient's level of risk, what are the challenges and opportunities to create biomarkers and therapeutics for those who are most vulnerable?
