To investigate whether the presence of a Systolic pressure index (<0.9 or> 1.4) is a marker of risk of cardiovascular events after peri-operative high-risk surgery outside the cardiac and vascular surgery.

Cardio-vascular Events

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Interest of Measuring the Systolic Pressure Index in Assessing the Risk of Cardiovascular Events Peri-operatively in the Surgery, Settled Out of Cardiovascular Surgery

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Limoges:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • It is a composite involving the following events: death, cardiovascular death, acute coronary syndrome, left cardiac decompensation, stroke, transient ischemic attack [ Time Frame: day1, day 2, day 3, 1 month, 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • - for the short term increase in the length of hospitalization - for the long term: death, cardiovascular death, hospitalization for acute coronary syndrome, cardiac decompensation left, TIA, stroke, acute ischemia and ischemia critical member. [ Time Frame: day1, day 2, day 3, 1 month, 1 year ]
