abstract

  • THR is a significant predictor of perioperative morbidity and mortality. THR offers a broad outlook on the metabolic state of patients undergoing major abdominal aortic surgery and hence their propensity to adverse events, allowing us to risk-stratify the prognostic outcome of surgical intervention and possibly intervene preoperatively to optimise results.
