Aim: The aim of our study was to evaluate the additive and logistic EuroSCORE performance within different risk factors among years and determine the risk factors for the mortality in our clinic.
Materials and Methods: Additive and logistic EuroSCORE model was applied to 434 patients who underwent coronary bypass operations between May 2004 and December 2008 at the Cardiovascular Surgery Clinic Of Ondokuz Mayıs University Faculty of Medicine. Statistical analyses were made by Chi-square method.
Results: Additive EuroSCORE value of the 147 patients in low risk group was 0.82±0.81 and logistic EuroSCORE of the same group was % 1.15±0.31. In moderate risk group including 129 patients, additive and logistic EuroSCORE values 4.05±0.81 and % 3.16±1.01 respectively. Additive and logistic EuroSCORE values of 158 high risk patients were found to be 8.88±2.92 and % 16.36±15.45 respectively. Actualised mortality rates of these patients was %2 in low risk group, %9.3 in moderate risk group %26.6 in high risk group.
Conclusion: In the light of our results, we have found that additive EuroSCORE severely underestimates the actualized mortality rates but logistic EuroSCORE predicts mortality more precisely for our clinical results.
