Brief Summary:
This study investigates if reduced serum levels of vitamin D concentration are a typical feature in patient group with low left ventricular function admitted for cardiac surgery interventions. and also the necessity of more preventive strategies for adequate nutrition of these patients with more focus on intake of vitamin D before admission to cardiac surgery.
