Introduction: The number of joint arthroplasties in the elderly continues to increase with the increase in elderly population. Postoperative cognitive dysfunction is an important complication after surgery in elderly patients. However, the exact cause of postoperative cognitive dysfunction and factors contributing to its development remain unknown. We aimed to determine whether blood loss during or after surgery and the approach for the replacement of this loss affected postoperative cognitive dysfunction frequency and duration.
