Cardiothoracic workstream


Johan Nilsson explained how risk stratification can aid identification of patients at risk of post-operative complications (and associated costs), thereby ensuring they undergo the most appropriate intervention. This is important when comparing mortality rates; high rates may be considered to be a result of poor surgical skills, but the acuity of the patient pre-operatively is a key determinant of clinical outcome. Available risk calculators are based on database patient information, but few exist for sternal wound infection risk in cardiac patients.
