Complications of Coronary artery disease remain the most common cause of morbidity and mortality after vascular surgical procedures. Goldman risk factor analysis has been suggested as peri-operative noninvasive screening method to detect significant coronary artery disease in emergent vascular procedures.
Methods and Materials: In this study, the accuracy of the Goldman scale was assessed with regard to the development of cardiac complications such as asymptomatic ischemic change in ECG, arrhythmia, myocardial infarction and cardiac death. We studied 100 patients that were required emergent vascular procedures from 2000-2001. Data about perioperative complications were extracted and analyzed using SPSS computer program.
Results: Our study indicated there is not statistical correlation between cardiac death, infarction, arrythmia, ECG change, age, sex and cardiac class.
Conclusion: We concluded that Goldman scale could not be regarded as a screening method to predict peri-operative cardiac complications in emergent vascular procedures.
