Abstract

To determine the risk factors and rate of 30-day operative mortality among Jordanian patients undergoing isolated coronary artery bypass surgery, we reviewed the records (January, 2005 to July, 2009) of 1,046 consecutive patients. Demographic and perioperative data were analyzed by univariate and multivariate analysis. The 30-day operative mortality rate was 5.9%. Significant independent predictors of death were age>65 years, female sex, heart failure, ejection fraction≤35%, prolonged inotropic support, mechanical ventilation>12 h, postoperative pneumonia, and postoperative stroke. The 30-day operative mortality rate was comparable to that reported in other countries.
