BACKGROUND Postoperative thrombocytopenia has been reported to be correlated with adverse events, but the prognostic value of baseline thrombocytopenia is unclear. This study was undertaken to evaluate the relationship between preoperative thrombocytopenia and adverse outcomes in patients with rheumatic heart disease who underwent valve replacement surgery. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 1789 patients with rheumatic heart disease undergoing valve replacement surgery were consecutively… CONTINUE READING
