Potential role of coronary computed tomography-angiography for guiding perioperative cardiac management for non-cardiac surgery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Perioperative cardiac events can be a major consequence of surgery. The American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association has set out guidelines to aid physicians in identifying patients at the highest risk for these events. The guidelines do recommend for some patients to undergo noninvasive cardiac stress testing for further risk stratification, but their sensitivity and specificity for predicting cardiac events is not optimal. With more data emerging of the superior performance of computed coronary tomography angiography (CCTA) compared to noninvasive stress testing, CCTA could be more useful in risk stratification for these patients.
