  Purpose

This survey has two aims. First, we would like to be informed about the health condition of our patients two years following heart surgery at University Hospital, Basel. Second, we are interested in determining whether a patient's long-term outcome can be predicted by the analysis of blood samples taken shortly after heart surgery.Troponin T, the blood parameter that we are interested in, is routinely assessed in the Intensive Care Unit. The purpose of this survey is to determine whether or not it is also possible to infer the long-term outcome from this blood parameter.
