CORTELLEZZI, Zuly; TORTAJADA, Gustavo; ROIF, Romina  and  VARELA, Gonzalo. Conduction disorders in the postoperative period of cardiac surgery. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2020, vol.35, n.3, pp.470-494.  Epub Dec 01, 2020. ISSN 0797-0048.

During postoperative care of cardiac surgery heart rhythm disorders are frequently seen. Most of them are transient, but some may need permanent pacemaker implantation. Knowing preoperative permanent pacemaker implantation predictors (i.e. patients characteristics, surgery type, etc.) will allow us to provide a better patient treatment, reduce morbidity and mortality, in-hospital length of stay and health care costs.

Keywords : Cardiac surgery; Postoperative; Heart conduction disorders; Permanent pacemaker.
