  1. For the STS score and the LES, predefined cut offs to identify high risk patients were taken from current recommendations. The thresholds for the ACEF and EuroScore2 score were defined from Youden’s Index after recalibration to the current data set. PPV: positive predictive value; NPV: negative predictive value; spec.:specificity; sens: sensitivity; F1: f-score; AUC: area under the ROC curve.
