UNLABELLED Patients undergoing vascular surgery have a high risk of suffering major postoperative cardiac events. Preoperative myocardial ischemia as detected by Holter monitoring identifies a high-risk subgroup whose postoperative ischemia, similarly detected, seems to herald major cardiac events. In this study, we determined whether systematic, patient-specific postoperative heart rate control with beta-adrenergic blocker therapy decreases the incidence of postoperative ischemia among high… CONTINUE READING
