Core Tip

Core Tip: Although early abdominal complications after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are rare, the associated mortality remains high. We developed a score for the prediction of early abdominal complications after CABG with CPB. The leading risk factors were multifocal atherosclerosis, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, intra-aortic balloon pump, atrial fibrillation, perioperative myocardial infarction, and the need for resternotomy in the postoperative period. A risk score that involves these factors makes it possible to stratify patients, which is important for timely treatment and diagnosis and, ultimately, will help to reduce postoperative mortality.
