Impact of BMI in Early Outcomes in Patients Undergoing on CABG

Mirjeta Guni [4] | Juliana Karanxha [4] | Monika Dede [3]

Abstract: Increasing levels of obesity worldwide have led to a rise in the prevalence of obesity-related complications including cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidaemia. Healthcare providers believe that overweight and obese cardiac surgery patients are more likely to experience adverse postoperative outcomes. The body mass index (BMI) is the primary measure of obesity in clinical practice, without accounting for a patient?s level of cardiopulmonary fitness or muscle mass. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of BMI on the early outcomes and in-hospital mortality of patients undergoing CABG.

Keywords: Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG); body mass index (BMI), adverse outcome
