About the "logistic" euroSCORE
Important: The previous
additive and logistic EuroSCORE models are out of date. A new model has
been prepared from fresh data and is launched at the 2011 EACTS meeting
in Lisbon. The new model is called EuroSCORE II - we strongly advise that you use this model - available here.
If you really wish to calculate the older "additive" or "logistic"
EuroSCORE you can use it above - but these calucaltors should only be
used when there is a specific requirement to use these older models.
By selecting "Standard euroSCORE" euroSCORE values are simply added to estimate risk of death as described in Roques F, Nashef SA, et al. Eur J Cardiothorac Surg. 1999 Jun;15(6):816-22
By selecting "Logistic euroSCORE" - euroSCORE predicted mortality is calculated as described in Roques F, Michel P, Goldstone AR, Nashef SA. Eur Heart J. 2003 May;24(9):882-3
Predicted mortality = e (β0 + åbi Xi) / 1+ e (β0 + åbi Xi)

 Chronic pulmonary disease Long term use of bronchodilators or steroids for lung disease
 Extracardiac arteriopathy One or more of claudication, carotid occlusion or >50% stenosis, previous or planned intervention on the abdominal aorta, limb arteries or carotids
 Neurological dysfunction Disease severely affecting ambulation or day-to-day functioning
 Active endocarditis Patient still on antibiotic treatment for endocarditis at time of surgery
 Critical preoperative state Ventricular Tachycardia / Ventricular Fibrillation or aborted sudden death, preoperative cardiac massage, preoperative ventilation before anaesthetic room, preoperative inotropes or IABP, preoperative Acute Renal Failure (anuria or oliguria <10ml/hr)
 Unstable angina Rest angina requiring i.v. nitrates until arrival in anaesthetic room
 Recent MI Myocardial infarction within 90 days
 Pulmonary hypertension Systolic pulmonary artery pressure >60mmHg
 Emergency Operation before beginning of next working day
