Background:  With over 230 million surgeries every year worldwide, the perioperative setting is an important challenge for clinical physicians. A particular challenge are perioperative myocardial injuries and infarctions (PMI), as they often present asymptomatic. Further, little is known concerning this frequent disease associated with a highly relevant increase in postoperative mortality. BASEL-PMI aims to increase the knowledge about PMIs, by evaluating a new screening strategy using high-sensitivity cardiac troponin done at the University Hospital Basel in high-risk patients.
