OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe clinical predictors for prolonged length of stay in the intensive care unit (PLOS-ICU) after adult thoracic aortic surgery requiring standardized deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA); and to determine the incidence of PLOS-ICU after DHCA, univariate predictors for PLOS-ICU, and multivariate predictors for PLOS-ICU. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective and observational study. PLOS-ICU was defined as longer than 5 days in the ICU. STUDY… CONTINUE READING
