Brief Summary: Postoperative delirium (POD) is a common and distressing complication after thoracic surgery. S-ketamine has neuroprotective properties as a dissociative anesthetic. Emerging literature has indicated that S-ketamine can reduce cognitive impairment in depressed patients. However, the role of S-ketamine in preventing postoperative delirium is still unknown. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the effect of intraoperatively prophylactic S-ketamine compared to dexmedetomidine on the incidence of postoperative delirium in elderly patients undergoing non-cardiac thoracic surgery.

Conditions:
  • Postoperative Delirium
  • Elderly Patients
