(Abstracted from J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth, 31:45–53, 2017) The purpose of this single-center retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data was to determine the role of lactate levels in predicting the severity of perioperative circulatory failure in patients recovering from cardiac surgery.
