Methods and Materials

1,136 patients from a tertiary referral center who were scheduled for cardiac surgery were included. Surgeries were performed between 2011-2015. To determine if the chest x-ray showed abnormalities and if these findings had clinical consequences, radiology reports, medical records and discharge letters were analyzed. We also determined if any other chest x-rays or cardiac/chest computed tomography (CT) acquisitions were performed in the year prior to surgery and if there was a relation between an abnormal chest x-ray and postoperative complications.
