  • GI complications after mitral valve surgery are infrequent, with a higher incidence in those with cardiogenic shock, CRI or requiring vasopressors. Pre-operative hemodynamic instability may be a bellwether for potential GI complications and should be of more prominent concern in this cohort of patients.
