    OBJECTIVES Progressive loss of calibration of the original EuroSCORE models has necessitated the introduction of the EuroSCORE II model. Poor model calibration has important implications for clinical decision-making and risk adjustment of governance analyses. The objective of this study was to...

    Background: Several models exist to predict results of patients who require surgery for valvular heart disease. Among these are database models with periodic upgrading. The EuroSCORE scale uses good discrimination and calibration to predict early and later mortality for patients undergoing heart...

    Background: Glycated proteins (advanced glycation endproducts, AGE) in tissue are associated with degenerative diseases. This study evaluated the role of sRAGE (soluble receptor for advanced glycation endproducts), a decoy receptor of AGEs in blood, for the outcome of patients after coronary...

    Background: The proportion of older patients in cardiac surgery is continuously increasing. 37% of patients undergoing heart surgery in Germany in the year 2000 were 70 years of age and older. We have studied the role of age as a determinant of mortality in cardiac surgery in our institutional...

    Cardiac surgery is increasingly performed on elderly patients with multiple comorbid conditions, but the determinants of the relationship between cost and survival time after cardiac surgery for patients with a serious cardiac condition remain uncertain. Using the long-term outcome data of a...

    Background: Patients with severe aortic stenosis, ineligible for surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR), may instead be offered balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV). However, initial international enthusiasm for BAV has waned due to early restenosis and symptom recurrence. Methods: We...
