Digestive complications after cardiac surgery along with frequency, predictors and impact on results.
Patients who had GI complications were significantly older, had a higher incidence of renal impairment, chronic lung disease, and anticoagulation therapy, and were more likely to be in cardiogenic shock. Emergency procedures, combined coronary artery bypass grafting, valve surgery, and aortic dissection cases were more common in the GI complication group. The GI complication group also had a higher incidence of return to theatre, renal failure, stroke, septicaemia, and multi-organ failure. Author(s): Takahashi Kimura*
