Mortality risk after mitral surgery in patients with obesity can be improved by better clinical management of other comorbidities.
Patients with obesity are at increased risk of morbidity and mortality, especially older and female patients with multiple comorbidities. Thus, addressing the modifiable factors associated with mortality in these patients could offer clinicians the chance to tailor their pre- and postoperative care for more optimal outcomes following mitral valve surgery.
