Perioperative medicine is an important and rapidly expanding area of interest across multiple specialties, including internal medicine, anesthesiology, surgery, cardiology, and hospital medicine. A multispecialty team approach that ensures the best possible patient outcomes has fostered collaborative strategies across the continuum of patient care. Staying current in this multidisciplinary field is difficult, because physicians interested in perioperative medicine would need to review multiple specialty journals on a regular basis. To facilitate this process, the authors performed a focused review of this literature published in 2013 and early 2014. In this update, key articles are reviewed that potentially impact clinical practice in perioperative cardiovascular risk prediction and risk management.
