The wrong or right decision by the surgeon.

Patient : A open heart patient during surgical prep. Has a cerebrovascular accident in the early perioperative stage brought on in part by Propofol and other narcotics being administered by the anesthesiologist. Three days later in PostOp a CTscan showed the patient suffered acute bilateral infarcts. The patient was comatose for seven days in PostOp. The question here is should the surgeon have aborted the surgery after the stroke. Inorder to assess the severity of the brain injury etc ? In this case, the surgeon went on with the operation. And caused fatal inrreversible vital organ damage to the patient too.
