Abstract

Patients referred to cardiac surgery for cardiovascular disease are at significant risk for the development of post-operative major adverse events despite significant advances in surgical techniques and perioperative care. Statins (HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors) have gained a pivotal role in the primary and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease, and are thought to improve perioperative outcomes in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 January 2015.
All research outputs
#1,940,960
of 13,040,236 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#4,643
of 10,447 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#17,071
of 119,711 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#36
of 100 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,040,236 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 85th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 10,447 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 119,711 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 100 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 64% of its contemporaries.
