BACKGROUND The greater longevity observed today has caused an increase in the number of elderly who need surgery. Aortic stenosis is a common condition in this age group. OBJECTIVE To evaluate morbidity and mortality in people aged 75 years or older who have undergone valvuloplasty or valve replacement surgery for aortic stenosis alone or associated with(More)
BACKGROUND Given the progressive increase in longevity and the need of an increasingly elderly population to undergo myocardial revascularization surgery (MRS), it becomes necessary to know its risks and benefits. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the in-hospital morbimortality of patients aged 80 and older submitted to MRS and identify its predictor variables. (More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of atrial fibrillation in the postoperative period of cardiac surgery, its impact on morbidity, mortality, and hospital stay, and to analyze the risk factors in the pre, trans, and postoperative periods. METHOD Contemporary cohort study with 158 adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery, of whom those with atrial(More)
INTRODUCTION Diabetes is a well known risk factor for early and late adverse outcomes in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG); however, few studies have investigated the impact of this risk factor in the group of older patients, especially octogenarians. OBJECTIVES To compare in-hospital mortality and morbidity of diabetic and(More)
INTRODUCTION An increasing number of octogenarian patients is undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). The short-term results of this procedure have been broadly studied, but there are few national reports on long-term outcomes. OBJECTIVES To describe hospital mortality and long-term survival of patients aged > 80 years undergoing isolated(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical and surgical profile between two groups of patients submitted to Myocardial Revascularization (MCR) surgery at the Instituto de Cardiologia of Rio Grande do Sul with a ten year interval, to observe its influence upon MCR hospital mortality and to verify the predictability of this result using the risk score. METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of preoperative heart valve surgery risk factors aim to improve surgical outcomes with the possibility to offset conditions related to increased morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVE Intent of this study is to identify hospital risk factors in patients undergoing bovine pericardial bioprosthesis implantation. METHODS Retrospective(More)

BACKGROUND About 10% to 15% of patients undergoing cardiac surgery may develop low cardiac output syndrome in the perioperative period; of this total, 2% require mechanical support for adequate hemodynamic control. OBJECTIVE To describe the mortality rates of patients who required the use of IABP in the perioperative or postoperative period of cardiac(More)
