Association between complications and death within 30 days after noncardiac surgery

It is rare to die in the Operating Room.

This prospective study looked at the rate and cause of death after non-cardiac surgery.

“Among adults undergoing noncardiac surgery, 99.3% of deaths occurred after the procedure and 44.9% of deaths were associated with 3 complications: major bleeding, MINS and sepsis. Given these findings, focusing on the prevention, early identification and management of these 3 complications holds promise for reducing perioperative mortality”
