Perioperative major cardiovascular events can occur in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. Preoperative cardiovascular evaluation is performed in order to risk stratify these patients and help minimize potential non-surgical complications. The aim of this article is to summarize the American College of Cardiology and American heart association guidelines for preoperative cardiac evaluation of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery in a simplified stepwise approach.
