Preexisting cognitive impairment, preoperative delirium, delirium occurring up to 7 days after surgery, delayed neurocognitive recovery, and postoperative neurocognitive disorders are all examples of perioperative neurocognitive disorders. The gold standard for diagnosing perioperative noncommunicable diseases is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). Given the difficulty of utilizing the DSM-5 by non-mental specialists, numerous indicative apparatuses have been created and approved for various clinical situations. Predisposing and precipitating factors play a role in the multifactorial etiology of perioperative non-communicable diseases. Recognizing these gamble factors is helpful for preoperative gamble delineation and perioperative gamble decrease. Preventing perioperative noncommunicable diseases should include avoiding potential triggers and implementing both pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions. The first usually includes avoiding benzodiazepines, anticholinergics, deep anesthesia, intraoperative hypothermia, prolonged liquid fasting, and cerebral oxygen desaturation. Preoperative cognitive prehabilitation, a comprehensive geriatric assessment, the implementation of fast-track surgery, the combined use of regional block, and sleep promotion are examples of non-pharmacologic measures. Dexmedetomidine, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and acetaminophen are examples of pharmacological treatments that have been found to be beneficial. For established perioperative noncommunicable diseases, nonpharmacological treatments are the first line of treatment. Currently, only severely agitated or distressed patients are eligible for pharmaceutical treatments.

An increasing number of elderly patients undergo anesthesia and surgery as a result of the aging of the global population and advancements in medical and health technology. Academics have gradually given perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction more and more attention. The term perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction, which is defined in accordance with the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders recently proposed as a means of enhancing the consistency and quality of academic communications by 6 well-known journals. Preoperatively diagnosed cognitive decline, postoperative delirium, delayed neurocognitive recovery, and postoperative cognitive dysfunction is all examples of perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction. Through the microbiota-gut-brain axis, there is mounting evidence that the gut microbiota plays a crucial role in neuropsychiatric disorders and central nervous system functions. A significant role for the gut microbiota in perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction has been suggested by our recent report that abnormalities in the composition of the gut microbiota may underlie the mechanisms of postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction.

As the world’s population gets older and medical and health technology gets better, more and more elderly people are getting surgery and anesthesia, and perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction is getting more attention. The most recent definition of perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction, which was published simultaneously in 6 leading journals in the field of anesthesia in November 2018, clarifies that perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction includes preoperatively cognitive impairment, postoperative delirium, delayed neurocognitive recovery, and postoperative cognitive dysfunction and meets the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for neurocognitive impairment. Preoperatively and within a year of surgery are included in the perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction time frame. Late examinations have shown that stomach microbiota directs focal apprehensive capability and conduct through the stomach microbiota-stomach-cerebrum hub, yet the job of the pivot in the pathogenesis of perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction stays hazy. Accordingly, this article audits the component of the job of stomach microbiota-stomach mind pivot in perioperative neurocognitive dysfunction, in order to assist with investigating sensible early treatment systems.
