Role of prophylactic coronary revascularisation in improving cardiovascular outcomes during non-cardiac surgery: A narrative review

Netherlands Heart Journal > Uitgave 10/2016
T. Rahat, T. Nguyen, F. Latif


Coronary revascularisation has been a topic of debate for over three decades in patients undergoing high-risk non-cardiac surgery. The paradigm shifted from routine coronary angiography toward stress test guided decision-making based on larger randomised trials. However, this paradigm is challenged by relatively newer data where routine coronary angiography and revascularisation is shown to improve perioperative cardiovascular outcomes. We review major studies performed over a long period including more contemporary data with regard to the 2014 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association as well as 2014 European Society of Cardiology guideline on perioperative cardiovascular evaluation of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery.
