Preanesthetic assessment of the patient with peripheral vascular disease

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Major vascular surgery has a high degree of perioperative morbidity and mortality. Although peripheral vascular disease itself contributes to patient risk, it is the concomitent disease processes that have a greater bearing on the perioperative course. A preanesthetic assessment of end-organ reserve and a knowledge of outcome studies can help delineate the degree of risk facing each patient.
