Abstract

Perioperative cardiac complications are among the most feared outcomes after surgery. Using evidence-based guidelines and expert opinion, physicians can perform a risk assessment and decide whether further cardiac testing, medical therapy, or coronary intervention is necessary to optimize the patient's medical condition prior to surgery. This article reviews the major concepts and recommendations from the ACC guidelines for preoperative cardiac evaluation and perioperative management to reduce risk. Medical management of the major postoperative cardiac complications is also discussed.
