    Author(s): Regayip Zehir, Sinan Zehir and Gonenc Kocabay*

    Objective: To evaluate whether a complete analysis of electrocardiograms (ECGs) taken before hip fracture surgery could provide prognostic data regarding in-hospital perioperative cardiovascular complications (PCVCs). Methods: Elderly patients who underwent surgery using a proximal femoral nail due to peritrochanteric fracture between 2009 and 2013 were retrospectively evaluated. Patients’ 12-lead preoperative ECGs were analyzed and corrected QT intervals (QTcs) were calculated. Following analysis, ECGs with atrial fibrillation, left or right bundle branch block, ventricular premature beats, Q-waves, ventricular strain, sinus bradycardia or tachycardia were designated as abnormal. The relationship between observed ECG abnormalities and calculated QTc interval, and the development of in-hospital PCVC was evaluated. Results: In total, 190 male and 232 female patien.. Read More»
