BACKGROUND Arterial pulse pressure hypertension is associated with perioperative morbidity and mortality in cardiac surgery patients. However, its association with perioperative mortality in other high-risk surgical populations has not been determined. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that increased preoperative arterial pulse pressure is associated with 30-day and 1-year all-cause mortality after lower extremity arterial bypass surgery. METHODS A retrospective review of patients who… CONTINUE READING
