Abstract

In this study, we chose to examine ISH as potential cardiac risk factor for patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. The incidence of myocardial ischemia, a surrogate outcome, was similar in the two groups. The relatively high incidence of myocardial ischemia (19.2%) was of particular interest in this relatively low cardiac risk surgical population. (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT01237652).
