BACKGROUND Post-operative complications after open elective abdominal aortic surgery are common, and individualised goal-directed therapy may improve outcome in high-risk surgery. We hypothesised that individualised goal-directed therapy, targeting stroke volume and oxygen delivery, can reduce complications and minimise length of stay in intensive care unit and hospital following open elective abdominal aortic surgery. METHODS Seventy patients scheduled for open elective abdominal aortic… CONTINUE READING
