    OBJECTIVES Risk stratification in cardiac surgery is uniquely detailed, led latterly by the EuroSCORE and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) risk calculators. The recently published EuroSCORE II (ES2) algorithms update estimated mortality in a broad spectrum of cardiac procedures. The 2008...

    Abstract: Background: EuroSCORE and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons’ (STS) Score have been the most widely used risk scores for cardiac surgery. The revised EuroSCORE II and the AusSCORE, based on an Australasian population, were recently developed. We compared the prognostic utility of...

    OBJECTIVES Prediction of operative risk in adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery remains a challenge, particularly in high-risk patients. In Europe, the EuroSCORE is the most commonly used risk-prediction model, but is no longer accurately calibrated to be used in contemporary practice. The...

    OBJECTIVES Conventional surgical risk scores are used to identify suitable candidates for transapical aortic valve implantation (TA-AVI) at present. However, these scores do not consider multiple high-risk conditions, including porcelain aorta, mediastinal irradiation or frailty. The aim of this...

    Abstract: Aim: High-risk patients are currently being evaluated for various catheter-based aortic valve replacement (AVR) techniques. To identify an individual patient''s risk, scores such as the EuroSCORE or STS risk calculator (RC) are used. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the...

    OBJECTIVES The European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (EuroSCORE) has been used for many years since its introduction in 1999. Recently, a new EuroSCORE (EuroSCORE II) has been developed to update the previous version. The EuroSCORE II includes some different predictors and/or...
