Abstract

Estimating the peri-operative risk of major adverse cardiac events is one of the functions of cardiac risk scoring systems. Fortunately, peri-operative cardiac complications are relatively infrequent in most patients. Clinical algorithms use sequential screening tests to detect patients most at risk of cardiac complications. However, because the sensitivity… (More)
