Table 5 Multivariate independent predictors

From: Impact of prosthesis-patient mismatch on early and late mortality after aortic valve replacement

Variable Early mortality Late mortality
Age + +
Severely impaired LV function (EF<30%) + +
Diabetes Mellitus +
Endocarditis +
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) +
Renal dysfunction + +
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) + +
Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) +
Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) time + +
Previous cardiac surgery +
  1. + = independent predictor of early and /or late mortality.
  2. - = no independent predictor of early and/or late mortality.
