Long-term impact of COPD on postoperative cardiorespiratory morbidity and mortality: a population cohort study.


  • Stacey Butler says:

    This is a really interesting study Nermin. The increased risk of death for COPD patients is really striking. Were you able to adjust for those with advanced COPD based on their previous exacerbation history or hospitalizations (given that you don’t have spirometry results)?

  • Adele Coriati says:

    Great work Nermin! Does duration of COPD have an effect on the risk of mortality and comorbidity in your study?

  • Richard Leung says:

    Very interesting. I don’t have a great sense of the time course. Is most of the excess mortality early or late? And how much is the annual mortality rate in a patient with COPD elevated irrespective of surgery?
