Abstract

Cardiovascular events after thoracic surgery can result in increased morbidity, mortality, length of stay, and increased overall cost. The prevention of postoperative cardiovascular complications is an area of intense study, and the body of evidence guiding clinicians continues to grow. Early diagnosis and management of cardiovascular events can minimize the consequences of these complications.
