Background: Myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery (MINS) is closely related to increased cardiovascular mortality. Aim: To evaluate the relationship between MINS and interarm systolic blood pressure difference (IASBPD), which has previously been shown to correlate with the frequency of cardiovascular events and arterial arteriosclerotic processes.
