Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Perioperative myocardial infarction and cardiac death are feared complications of noncardiac surgery. Preoperative risk assessment begins with clinical variables. There is no formula for determining who needs further evaluation. In selected patients, thallium scintigraphy or coronary arteriography is needed to define preoperative risk.
