Assessment of the Initial and Modified Parsonnet Score in Mortality Prediction of the Patients Operated in the Sarajevo Heart Center
Keywords:mortality prediction, Parsonnet score, scoring systems
This study has been conducted in an effort to establish more suitable and accurate scoring model we use in everyday practice. Among the specific outcome prediction models, in 1989 Parsonnet et al elaborated a method of uniform risk stratification for evaluation of the results of cardiac surgery procedures. We have tested two forms of the Parsonnet score, Initial and Modified Parsonnet score, in our patients.
In the first half of the year 2007, 145 patients were operated in Sarajevo Heart center. All operated patients in that period, have participated in this study. The overall hospital mortality was 4,13 (6 deaths). This study shows that the initial and modified Parsonnet’s scores are predictive for operative mortality in adult cardiac surgery patients.
