About this Calculator

The Vascular Quality Initiative Cardiac Risk Index (VQI-CRI) was developed from a cohort of over 43,000 combined vascular surgery procedures and predicts the risk of in-hospital postoperative myocardial infarction. The VQI-CRI has not yet been validated with an external dataset.

The OAAA VQI CRI is applicable to open infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. The OAAA index is not applicable to suprarenal, thoracic or thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair. The OAAA index does not apply to ruptured aortic aneurysm. The VQI-CRI has been internally validated but has not yet been validated within an external dataset.
