Analysis of post coronary bypass surgery risk factors and scoring system with study of immunogenetic epidemiology

Author(s)

The fact that the mean mortality rate of 5.59% after coronary bypass surgery at the Indonesian National Cardiac Center (Harapan Kita Hospital) has not changed significantly in the last 10 year period (1990-2000) warrants reassessment. The available literature reflects the opinion that the outcome of coronary bypass surgery patients could not be easily laid-out, which reflects the complexity of the problems affecting the patients’ condition before and during surgery.

Published predictors of surgical mortality have been available in the form of scoring systems, for instance: Parsonnet score in the US, Euro score in Europe, Melbourne score in Australia.
