Abstract

Aim: In association with increasing life expectancy, the number of elderly individuals undergoing coronary bypass grafting (CABG) and additional cardiac surgical procedures are increasing. In this study, we evaluated the effects of additional cardiac procedures and preoperative risk factors for postoperative mortality and morbidity in patients 80 years of age and older.
