Abstract

Various guidelines and risk indices have optimized cardiac risk stratification, and the emphasis has shifted to reducing perioperative risk. This review is an update on invasive (CABG/PCI) and noninvasive (medical therapy with beta-blockers, alpha-agonists, and statins) strategies to reduce cardiac risk for noncardiac surgery and the controversies surrounding their use.
