High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) adds important prognostic information, not reflected by traditional risk factors, to the prediction of both the development and outcome of cardiovascular pathology. HsCRP levels also correlate inversely with cardiorespiratory fitness, an important determinant of peri-operative outcome. We hypothesised that pre-operative hsCRP should be associated with excess peri-operative morbidity and longer length of stay. Pre-operative hsCRP was measured blinded… CONTINUE READING
