In Table 4, results from mortality analyses are presented. At 30 days postoperatively, 88 of 326 (27%) cases were deceased. There was no difference in IOH occurrence among patients with fatal (<30 days) and nonfatal MI, adjusting for age, sex, ASA physical status, and comorbidities in logistic regression (P = .84). Day 91–365, 39 cases (20%) and 26 controls (9%) died. Crude HR was 2.12 (95% CI, 1.27–3.55), adjustment for DM and IHD resulted a HR of 2.01 (95% CI, 1.19–3.38). During 31–90 days, there was no difference in mortality between cases and controls.
