Adverse cardiac events after orthotropic liver transplantation: A cross-sectional study in 389 consecutive patients
from Liver Transplantation
Current American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines caution that preoperative non-invasive cardiac tests may have poor predictive values in detecting coronary artery disease in liver transplant candidates. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of clinical predictor variables for early and late cardiac morbidity and mortality and the predictive values of non-invasive cardiac tests for perioperative cardiac events in a high-risk liver transplant population.
