stratification
Stratification
  • Patient factor
    • Different classification systems
      • Goldman 1977
      • Detsky 1986
      • Lee’s revised 1999
    • Recognize similar key points
  • Surgical factors/risk
    • Low
    • Intermediate
    • High
surgery classification
Surgery classification
  • Invasiveness
  • Emergent / Routine
surgical stratification
Surgical Stratification
  • Cardiac risk
    • High (> 5% risk of cardiac event*):
      • Emergent major operations, esp. in elderly
      • Aortic/ major vascular surgery
      • Peripheral vascular surgery
      • Anticipated large fluid shifts and/or blood loss

*Cardiac event = fatal and non-fatal MI

slide8
Intermediate risk (< 5% risk of event)
    • Carotid endarterectomy
    • Head and neck surgery
    • Intraperitoneal and intrathoracic surgery
    • Orthopedic or Prostate surgery
slide9
Low risk (< 1% risk of cardiac event)
    • Endoscopic procedures
    • Superficial procedures
    • Cataract surgery
    • Breast surgery
pulmonary risk
Pulmonary risk
  • Definite factors
    • Upper abdominal surgery
    • Thoracic surgery
    • AAA repair
    • Surgery > 3hrs
  • Probable factors
    • General anesthesia
    • Emergency surgery
patient factors
Patient Factors
  • Exercise Capacity
  • Medication use
  • Obesity

exercise capacity
Exercise Capacity
  • Good capacity = 4 METs
    • Two level blocks without symptoms
    • One flight of stairs with two bags of groceries

Poor exercise capacity: < four level blocks or two flights of stairs

Expected Complications:

Total: 20% vs 10%

Cardiac: 10% vs 5%

Pulmonary: 9% vs 6% (not statistically signif.)

medication use
Medication use
  • Back door route to forgotten medical hx
    • HTN
    • Hypothyroid
    • Asthma/COPD
  • May forget OTCs (aspirin, NSAIDS)
    • So ask!
obesity
Obesity
  • DESPITE
    • Reduced lung volume
    • V/Q mismatch
    • Relative hypoxemia
  • NOT a risk factor, but considered in pulmonary and upper abdominal surgery

Studies that show increased RR tend to not use multivariate analysis

slide18
Age
  • Mortality risk
    • < 60 = 1.3%
    • 80-89 = 11.3%

Multiple factors present, not a good sole criterion for withholding surgery

slide19
Labs
  • CBC
    • Asymptomatic anemia <1% prevalence
    • Surgically significant anemia is even lower
    • Mortality for surgery with expected blood loss
      • Hct >12  1.3%
      • Hct < 6  33%
    • Remainder of CBC not useful (wbc,plt) in asymptomatic individuals
labs cont d
Labs (cont’d)
  • Lytes
    • History/medication use more useful
  • BUN/Cr
    • Reasonable over 50 – recent emphasis on CRI
    • Major surgery
    • Hypotension expected
    • Nephrotoxic meds anticipated
labs cont d21
Labs (cont’d)

FBS/FBG/FSG – or just serum glucose

Not recommended for surgical screening

**Recent control hx imperative for diabetics**

LFT – only if history/exam suggest disease

PT/PTT – low correlation of abnl to postop comp.

“perfectly unhelpful” predictor

+ likelihood ratio 0.0

- likelihood ratio 1.01

labs cont d22
Labs (cont’d)
  • UA
    • ? id renal disease or UTI?
      • Serum Cr would id renal dz better
      • UTIs may contribute to 4-5 post-op infections/year
        • If UA for all non-prosthetic knee operations
        • $1.5 million per infection prevented!
        • Post-op infection adds ~$3000 to surgical costs
slide23
EKG
  • Low likelihood of changing management
  • Recent MI important to detect
  • Cardiac event risk increased by:
    • Non-sinus rhythm
    • PACs
    • >5 PVCs
  • No risk increase with BBB
slide24
EKG
  • Recommendations
    • Men > 45 Women > 55
    • Known cardiac dz
    • H&P suggesting possibility of cardiac dz
    • Electrolyte imbalance risk (ie diuretic use)
    • DM/HTN
    • Candidates for major surgeries
slide25
CXR
  • Abnormalities not well associated with post-operative risk
    • 0.1% affected management
    • Routine use not recommended
  • 2 exceptions (by consensus)
    • >60y
    • Suspected cardiac or pulmonary disease
pulmonay function test
Pulmonay Function Test
  • No improvement over clinical eval
  • Where the money is:
    • Decreased breath sounds
    • Prolonged expiratory phase
    • Rales, rhonchi, wheezes
  • PFTs for unexplained dyspnea after good clinical eval
minor risk predictors
Minor risk predictors
  • Advanced age
  • Abnormal electrocardiogram
    • Left ventricular hypertrophy
    • Left bundle branch block
    • ST-T-wave abnormalities
  • Rhythm other than sinus rhythm (e.g., atrial fibrillation)
  • Low functional capacity: < 4 METs (e.g., inability to climb one flight of stairs holding a bag of groceries)
  • History of stroke
  • Uncontrolled systemic hypertension
intermediate risk predictors
Intermediate risk predictors
  • Mild angina pectoris
  • Previous MI based on the history or the presence of pathologic Q waves
  • Compensated or previous CHF
  • Diabetes mellitus, particularly insulin-dependent diabetes
  • Renal insufficiency
major risk predictors
Major risk predictors
  • Unstable coronary syndromes
    • Acute (<7d) or recent (7-30d) MI w/ evidence of important ischemic risk by clinical symptoms or noninvasive study
    • Unstable or severe angina
  • Decompensated CHF
  • Significant arrhythmias
    • High-grade atrioventricular block
    • Symptomatic ventricular arrhythmia in the presence of underlying heart disease
    • Supraventricular arrhythmias with uncontrolled ventricular rate
  • Severe valvular disease
indications for ambulatory ecg for ischemia monitoring
Indications for Ambulatory ECG for ischemia monitoring
  • Class I: None
  • Class IIa
  • Patients with suspected variant angina
  • Class IIb
  • Evaluation of patients with chest pain who cannot exercise
  • **Preoperative evaluation for vascular surgery of patients who cannot exercise**
  • Patients with known CAD and atypical chest pain syndrome
  • Class III
  • Initial evaluation of chest pain patients who are able to exercise
  • Routine screening of asymptomatic subjects

2007 dental update
2007 Dental update
  • Antimicrobial prophylaxis = FOUR cardiac conditions w/ highest risk of adverse outcome from endocarditis:
  • 1. Prosthetic cardiac valves
  • 2. Cardiac transplantation with subsequent valvulopathy
  • 3. Previous history of infective endocarditis
  • 4. Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), including only:
    • Unrepaired cyanotic CHD, including palliative shunts and conduits
    • Completely repaired congenital heart defects with prosthetic material or device, whether placed by surgery or by catheter intervention, during the first six months after the procedure
    • Repaired CHD with residual defects at the site or adjacent to the site of a prosthetic patch or prosthetic device (which inhibit endothelialization)
  • B. Dental Procedures for Which Endocarditis Prophylaxis is Recommended: “All dental procedures that involve manipulation of gingival tissue or the periapical region of teeth or perforation of the oral mucosa.”*
  • * No prophylaxis needed: routine anesthetic injections through non-infected tissue, taking dental radiographs, placement of removable prosthodontic or orthodontic appliances, adjustment of orthodontic appliances, placement of orthodontic brackets, shedding of deciduous teeth, and bleeding from trauma to the lip or oral mucosa.
  • C. What Antibiotic Regimens for a Dental Procedure? The same single dose antibiotic regimens from the 1997 Guidelines can be given 30 to 60 minutes before the procedure.

  • *Blood pressure and pulse
  • *Expand H & P if above abnl, pt >60y or major surgery

summary
Summary
  • Pre-op eval is not “clearance”
    • Determine risks, then minimize
    • Let surgeon, anesthesia do the “clearing”
  • Screening Labs/Tests rarely useful alone
    • Should be driven by suspicions from eval/hx
