The purpose

Background: Malnutrition is widespread among cardiac surgery patients and is independently related to an adverse postoperative evolution or outcome. The investigators aimed to assess whether nutrition therapy (NT) could alter caloric deficit, morbidity, and mortality in patients scheduled for non-emergency coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) or aortic valve surgery. Methods: 351 patients undergoing either elective CABG or aortic valve surgery were studied. Patients receiving NT were enrolled from January 2013 until December 2014. A historical control group consisted of 142 matched patients. Preoperative nutritional status was evaluated. Resting energy expenditure was measured using indirect calorimetry or calculated. Caloric intake and caloric deficits were assessed. The primary endpoint was to evaluate whether NT could limit caloric deficit (Intake to Need Deviation). A secondary endpoint addressed the potential effect of NT on morbidity and mortality. Patients were followed for one year after surgery.
