2014 ESC/ESA Guidelines on non-cardiac surgery: cardiovascular assessment and management
The present Guidelines focus on the cardiovascular management of patients in whom heart disease is a potential source of complications during non-cardiac surgery. The risk of perioperative complications depends on the condition of the patient before surgery, the prevalence of comorbidities, and the urgency, magnitude, type, and duration of the surgical procedure.
These Guidelines are intended for physicians and collaborators involved in the pre-operative, operative, and post-operative care of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. The objective is to endorse a standardized and evidence-based approach to perioperative cardiac management.
