Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Male and female patients >18 years undergoing major vascular surgery will be invited to participate. Specifically, patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, suprainguinal and infrainguinal vascular surgery, as well as carotid surgery will be included. After the first 30 patients, the population is to be expanded to elevated-risk surgeries in general.
Adults >18 years
Type of surgery for patients 1 to 30: abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, suprainguinal and infrainguinal vascular surgery, carotid surgery
Type of surgery for patients 31 to 500: surgeries with elevated risks in general (as specified by 2014 ESC/ESA Guidelines on non-cardiac surgery:
cardiovascular assessment and management [Kristensen])
acute coronary Syndrome (ACS) at presentation (clinical assessment or documentation)
Congestive heart failure at presentation (clinical assessment or documentation)
Documented severe aortic stenosis (valve area <1cm2)
Kidney dysfunction (clearance <50ml/min)
Reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) (<40%); if no LVEF is available, it will be assumed to be >40%
Unwilling or unable to provide consent
Inability to follow the procedures of the study, e.g. due to language problems, psychological disorders, dementia, etc. of the participant
