The limits of generalized cardiac screening tests for predicting cardiac complications after infrainguinal arterial reconstruction.


We examined the relative efficacies of different cardiac screening strategies for infrainguinal arterial bypass. The outcomes of 205 elective leg bypass procedures over a 10-year period, including myocardial infarction (MI), total cardiac complications, and mortality were tallied. Clinical risk factors popularized by Goldman and Eagle, and the results of… (More)
