Neurosurgical pathology of the brain (brain injury, neuro oncology, aneurism, arteriovenous malformation, stenosis and thrombosis of cerebral arteries) is the most important cause of cognitive deficiency. The aim of the work is to assess the structure of cognitive impairment in neurosurgical pathology and to develop methods of cognitive rehabilitation. The structure and features of cognitive impairment in 165 patients with neurosurgical profile were studied. The influence on their structure and severity as well as on the effectiveness of rehabilitation measures of a number of factors, including localization and nature of the pathological process, the volume and timing of surgery, the level of education and psycho-emotional status was studied. The comparative efficiency of application of medical, physiotherapeutic and computer techniques in cognitive rehabilitation of neurosurgical patients was analyzed. Based on the results of a comprehensive analysis of the effectiveness of rehabilitation measures, algorithms of cognitive rehabilitation of neurosurgical patients have been developed.
