The weak heart: perioperative management


Bettex, Dominique A; Chassot, Pierre-Guy; Rudiger, Alain (2015). The weak heart: perioperative management. Cardiovascular Medicine, 18(10):273-281.

Abstract

Heart failure (HF) is known to be a major risk factor in perioperative care. It should be subdivided into systolic or diastolic dysfunction as well as left or right ventricular failure. The perioperative management of HF patients is complex, consisting of prevention, diagnosis and therapy. The adequacy of the perioperative management determines the late postoperative outcome and will be presented in this review.
