Frailty Assessment by Edmonton Frail Scale to Predict Outcome in Patients Undergoing Cardiovascular Surgery "Frail Heart" Study


We are looking at measures of frailty (including an assessment questionnaire and other data from the medical record) and the relationship to outcomes from cardiac or vascular surgery. The questionnaire will take about 10 minutes to complete and we will contact you by phone once every three months for one year after your surgery.
