NAVARRO SCOUT, Mayelín  and  TORRALBAS REVERON, Fredy Eladio. Practical considerations on eye surgery in the cardiac patient. MEDISAN [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.10, pp.7057-7065. ISSN 1029-3019.

Responsibility for comprehensive preoperative evaluation in ophthalmologic interventions often falls on the surgeon, who should identify those patients with increased cardiovascular risk and take timely measures to prevent these complications. This article focuses on such aspects, defining the actions that correspond directly to the ophthalmologist, those in which he serves as manager, and those which do not concern him rigorously. The most modern pharmacological strategies are also described, with emphasis on the use of antiplatelet drugs or anticoagulants and on the need of antimicrobial prophylaxis; unstable heart entities, which, with few exceptions, require postponing the intervention and treatment principles in the most common cardiovascular diseases are referred

Keywords : eye surgery; ophthalmologist; cardiac patient; cardiovascular diseases.
