Abstract

Laboratory tests, electrocardiogram (ECG) and chest X-rays still serve as part of the routine assessment before elective surgery in many institutions, even though there is little evidence of their predictive value relating to perioperative complications. This study investigates the correlation of abnormal findings in pre-operative tests and pathologic findings in the medical history with perioperative complications.
