Abstract

Pre-operative risk assessment in patients with cardiovascular diseases beside clinical state and functional capacity, should cover risk associated with surgical procedure and type of anaesthesia. It should be tailored to the patient’s state and urgency of surgery. Majority of stable patients, after cardiological assessment, can undergo low or intermediate risk surgery without additional examinations. In patients with clinical risk factors, in whom high risk surgery procedure is planned, profound cardiological assessment supported with additional examination and optimization of pharmacothe­rapy may help prepare them to the surgery and decrease peri-operative cardiovascular risk.
